Our Target

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.


Start Your Career Here

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.


Entrance Requirements for Direct/Non-JUPAS Applicants

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.


Curriculum

For details of the programme's curriculum structure, please visit the 'Undergraduate Catalogue' (Note: The catalogue for the 2019 cohort is for reference only. The 2020 catalogue will be published around July 2020.)


What You Will Be Studying

Students are required to complete 124 credit units in different courses. The major covers communication skills, general studies and core subjects in Complex Analysis, Computing and Programming Techniques, Differential Equations, Discrete Mathematics, Linear Algebra, Mathematical Analysis, Numerical Methods, Optimization, Ordinary Differential Equations, Partial Differential Equations and Probability and Statistics.

Electives include Actuarial Science, Applied Functional Analysis, Applied Statistics, Computational Geometry, Dynamical Systems and Chaos, Finite Element Method, Introduction to Stochastic Processes, Mathematical Finance, Modelling and Partial Differential Equations, and Sampling Survey Methods for Social and Market Research.


Industrial Training and International Exchange

The College of Science (CSCI) and the Department offer work placement opportunities through various internship schemes that provide students with full-time job attachments in firms not only in Hong Kong, but also in the Pearl River Delta region and overseas. Through such placements, students will:

  • broaden their experience and enhance their employability;
  • develop problem-solving abilities and interpersonal skills;
  • gain solid experience in a real-world work environment; and
  • learn the right attitudes towards work and professionalism.

For details, please visit the College's Co-operative Education website.

Furthermore, for students to broaden their educational horizons, gain language experience and enhance their awareness of different cultures, the Department, College and University offer over 110 credit-bearing exchange programmes with various partner institutions around the world, including universities in Australia, Canada, Europe, the US and the Asia-Pacific region.
