Program objectives

Successful completion of the program will enable graduates to:

  • acquire specific knowledge and skills in mathematics which are
    relevant to their disciplines and careers

  • become better problem solvers and innovative thinkers and thus
    be able to contribute at a higher level to their professional environment

  • understand the meaning and basis of fundamental mathematical
    ideas and techniques

  • demonstrate the ability to model real-life scenarios in order
    to enable mathematical analysis

  • demonstrate the ability to apply mathematics to the solution
    of problems in a variety of situations.

Program structure

The program consists of eight units of study. The courses studied
will depend on the student's background in mathematics but at least
five will be courses from the Mathematics and Statistics major of
the Bachelor of Science.

Students must complete any eight courses from the following
table, provided that at least two Level 3 courses are completed and
at least five courses are from the Mathematics and Statistics major
of the Bachelor of Science.
