Short Description

The 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.

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.

The Department currently offers the following major:
