Department of Mathematics

The Department specialises in applied and computational mathematics. Undergraduate teaching is backed up by extensive research on a wide range of topics. This places us in close contact with many modern uses of mathematics. Our programme is both relevant and up-to-date.

We are proud of our academic staff, many of whom are internationally renowned scholars. For example, Professor Philippe G. Ciarlet, member of the French Academy of Sciences and of seven other academies, was Chair Professor of the Department until August 2011. He joined the office of the College of Science and Engineering in September 2011 as University Distinguished Professor. Professor Ciarlet has received numerous distinctions, among which a Grand Prize of the French Academy of Sciences and an Alexander von Humboldt Research Award.

Professor Ciarlet is currently Senior Fellow in the Institute for Advanced Study of City University of Hong Kong.

本系專長於數學的實際應用及計算,系內同仁廣泛而深入的研究為良好的教學提供了紮實的基礎,教學內容緊密地聯繫現代數學的應用。我們的數學課程既緊貼時代發展,又具有實際運用價值。

本系的教員令我們深感自豪,當中不乏享譽國際的學者。法國科學院兼另外七間學院院士Philippe G. Ciarlet 教授,曾任本系講座教授至二零一一年八月,九月開始出任科學及工程學院大學傑出教授。Ciarlet 教授獲頒多個獎項,其中包括法國科學院的法國科學大獎及洪堡研究獎。

Ciarlet 教授現為香港城巿大學高等研究院資深院士。


Major Aims

The Bachelor of Science in Computing Mathematics programme was introduced in 1994. This major is unique in Hong Kong.  It emphasizes the balance between theories and their applications to practical problems, with a special focus on applied mathematics linked to computational aspects.

The major aims at equipping students and producing graduates with a strong background in:

  • data analysis
  • mathematical modelling
  • scientific computing
  • technical computer software

Students are trained to think quantitatively and analyse problems critically.

As graduates of our programme, they are 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.

Apart from joining the workforce, some of our graduates further their studies locally or in overseas universities, such as University of Cambridge, University of Oxford in UK, and University of Toronto in Canada, and Harvard University, New York University and Universities of California in the US.

計算數學理學士課程於一九九四年開辦,著重理論和應用數學的平衡,尤其是與科學計算之關連。本課程旨在為學生在數據分析、數學模型、科學計算及專業軟件方面建立鞏固的學術根基,並提供數量思考與分析解難能力的培訓。畢業生為各行各業羅致的對象,包括數據分析、數學模型、科學程式編排、數學科教師等。大部份畢業生於商界、金融界或教育界開展事業。

除了開展職業生涯,部份畢業生在本地或海外繼續升學,例如:英國劍橋大學、牛津大學、加拿大多倫多大學,以及美國哈佛大學、紐約大學及加州大學等。
