- Computational Mathematical Sciences, B.Sc.
- Duration : 4 years
Mathematics is a crucial component in many disciplines such as physics, life sciences, engineering, business, economics and social sciences.
If you have studied computer sciences, you will have gained many technical and non-technical skills which are highly valued by employers, from leadership to programming. The increasing scope of computer science means you have plenty of choice in a wide variety of highly specialized areas. With computer technologies playing an ever growing role in all aspects of modern life, you re likely to find your computer science skills in high demand across many different industries. These include: financial organizations, management consultancy firms, software houses, communications companies, data warehouses, multinational companies (IT-related, financial services and others), governmental agencies, universities and hospitals. However, unsurprisingly, most graduates go into roles within the computer industry.
As always, it's extremely beneficial to have completed relevant work experience. You should also consider compiling a portfolio of your own independent projects outside of your degree, which could be in the form of programming, moderating online or even building an app. This will demonstrate to employers your interest in the subject and your problem-solving skills, creativity and initiative.
The BS in computational mathematical sciences is an interdisciplinary degree with components in mathematics, science and computing. A focus is placed on computational and numerical aspects of techniques used to solve a wide range of applied problems arising in practically any field of study. A large component of the program involves understanding why and how computer algorithms work as well as their limitations in terms of applicability and efficiency. This program is designed for students interested in computing and simulation of applied problems. It promotes creative skills and develops problem-solving tools needed in today's technological world.
Programme Structure Courses include: Principles of Programming with Java Student Success in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Calculus with Analytic Geometry Introduction to Programming Languages Applied Linear Algebra Humanities, Arts and Design Scientific Computing Science Sequence Course
