Overview

This joint program brings together Mathematics and Computer Science, combining the mathematical skills of reasoning and problem solving, with the knowledge of algorithms and computing. These two disciplines and skillsets vitally complement each other.  

You will cover a diverse range of subjects, including algebra, algorithm design, calculus, numerical analysis, software systems, programming and probability. Develop broad skills and explore the possibilities of programming and computing at the intersection of these complementary disciplines. 


Careers

A background in the fields of mathematics and computer science has become increasingly valuable, with our economies relying greatly on data analysis and problem-solving abilities. The program provides a unique combination of two thriving and high demand fields. Should you wish to further your skills and employability, you may want to pursue further studies in either or both fields.   

You could become a professional:  

  • Economist   
  • Data analyst  
  • Software developer  
  • Mathematician   
  • Web developer
