We aim at equipping students and producing graduates with strong backgrounds in data analysis, mathematical modelling, scientific computing and technical computer software. Students are trained to think quantitatively and analyse problems critically. Our graduates contribute to the commercial, financial and industrial sectors in Hong Kong and throughout Greater China. The programme focuses on linking the applied areas of mathematics and computing.
As a graduate of our major, you will find yourself in hot demand in a number of fields, including data analysis, business intelligence analysis, mathematical modelling, quantitative business planning, and scientific programming. There is also a demand for mathematics teachers in Hong Kong secondary schools. Most graduates entered the workforce in business, finance and education sectors.
To be considered for admission, you must satisfy the General Entrance Requirements and have studied a science-related subject such as Mathematics, Further Mathematics or Statistics at a high school or post-secondary institution.
For senior-year (Advanced standing II) admission, applicants are normally expected to have completed an Associate Degree/Higher Diploma with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of ≥3.0 or an equivalent overall mark, or a credit award.
As direct applicants are selected according to a variety of qualifications, selection is made on a case-by-case basis. Performance in selection tests and interviews, where applicable, is also an important assessment criterion.
HKDSE students will apply for admission to first-year studies (JS1206) through JUPAS.
