The primary purpose of the BSc Honours qualification is to consolidate and deepen the students’ knowledge and expertise in Mathematical Statistics, and to develop research capacity in the methodology and techniques of it. BSc Honours is essentially a coursework degree of which at least 25% (30) of the credits are devoted to a research project and reporting under supervision. The degree demands a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual independence, and serves as the initial science postgraduate specialization qualification providing students with in-depth scientific knowledge and skills preparing them for research based postgraduate science study. Mathematical Statistics 3A10 and 3B10 are compulsory prerequisites. Students that do not comply with this requirement may be admitted at the discretion of the Chairman of the Department. Such students may be required to do additional work as prescribed by the Chairman of the Department. A student needs a semester mark of 40% to gain entrance to the final assessment opportunity. The semester and final assessment mark weight is 50:50. A student needs a final mark of 50% to pass a module. The semester mark also contributes to the result of a supplementary assessment. The final result of a supplementary assessment is capped on 50%.

Mathematics - BSc (Hons) Our BSc (Hons) Mathematics degree contains plenty of pure and applied mathematics as well as some numerical analysis. You will have the opportunity to learn a broad range of mathematical topics that will develop your knowledge and strengthen your understanding of the subject. Learning is through a mix of lectures, tutorials and assignments with a significant level of personal study and, as teaching groups are not large, you can be sure of excellent support and attention from teaching staff. You will also have the opportunity to pursue an area of personal interest through submission of a dissertation in your final year. About the course Group sizes are relatively small with an average of about 20 students per class so you will receive excellent support and attention from teaching staff. During your studies you are not required to specialise in any particular aspect or application of mathematics, though there is an opportunity to do so if desired. Additional topics included on the course, which you will study mainly during your final year, have been chosen because they introduce you to areas of current interest and lead you naturally towards research topics. Special features The department is relatively small and friendly and offers enthusiastic teaching and support throughout the course of your studies. What you will learn The degree contains a broad mix of mathematics. Topics similar to those found on A-level courses are included to a greater depth and with a greater degree of specialisation as well... [-]

All of life is mostly about the science of life; about the wonder in the science of life is in the couplings; the art in the basics of that coupling our ancestors must have called “Mathematics” in different languages. We have since designated some subnames- ‘integration,' ‘summation,' ‘evaluation,' differentiation, ‘sampling,' ‘logic,' etc. The undergraduate programme which we present as mathematics are the current tools for addressing real life couplings – changes in position (translation, s), rate of change of translation (speed =ds /dt = v) rate of change of speed (acceleration = dv/dt =g), etc. Recall how our maker at the beginning designed acceleration due to gravity to control all of our perambulations of kilometers above the earth. Population distribution, rate (again) of growth, labour absorptive capacity, demography and biostatistics, we never overlook. Our current dependence on information Technology must constitute the many dimensional fulcrum (origin) of a current mathematician; the department is very much aware. Our products cannot afford not to be IT leaders. We can surely see; we can see a vision: In the not too distant future, any scientist worth more than a glance, must first possess a mathematical mind and training so that he/she can surely understand what he/she come across. This must be before the world would ask “what is it really?” The Department offers: i. A B.Sc Hons Mathematics ii. A B.Sc Hons degree in Mathematics with Computer Science [-]
