BSc Honours in Applied Mathematics

Offered by the Department of Mathematics

BSc Honours in Applied Mathematics is designed to provide an adequate foundation for advanced academic and professional activities in the field of applied mathematics. This programme intends to provide a deep and broad understanding of applied mathematics and targets students having sound theoretical and practicable interests. It provides a solid preparation for higher studies & research in applied mathematics. Further, this programme covers a broad spectrum of mathematical topics, from abstract methods to numerical computation/ mathematical modeling/ computer simulation, and emphasises their application to real-world problems. Degree programme is designed to develop logical, analytic, programming and data analysis abilities, together with the presentation and practical problem-solving skills.

Intended Learning Outcomes
At the end of the 04 years (SLQF Level 6) BSc Honours in Applied Mathematics (Research Orientation) holders should be able to:

  • demonstrate thorough and systematic understanding of advanced concepts in the field of applied mathematics.
  • demonstrate practical skills in mathematics, mathematical modeling, computer simulation and related disciplines, through the use of established techniques and development of new techniques.
  • develop hypotheses, construct and sustain arguments in the context of research and investigation.
  • eloquently communicate & disseminate knowledge, information and ideas to academic and industry-oriented audiences.
  • practice professionalism and uphold ethical standards.
  • function independently as well as interdependently.
  • demonstrate leadership skills.
  • express emotional and intellectual maturity in a global setting.
  • be prepared to carry out independent and further learning.
