Bachelor of Science (Mathematics Minor)

Course Code: 

This minor started with the first year students of 2010/2011 academic year. The current second and third years will continue with the old minor programme.


To qualify for a Minor in Mathematics, a student must pass all the core courses and earn a minimum of 30 CUs in Mathematics courses and 6CUs from the cross-cutting core courses. The list of electives offered in a particular year depends on the staff available and is therefore subject to change.

Students are free to take extra courses in Mathematics to make up their degree programme requirements but should not normally exceed 36 CUs in Mathematics. Note that all the mathematics courses after First Year are electives. Students should plan to satisfy the pre-requisite requirements for any course that they choose, e.g. to be allowed to choose MTH2202 Complex Analysis in Second Year, Semester IV, a student must have chosen MTH2101 Real Analysis in Second Year, Semester III.
