Department of Mathematics

The students entering the Mathematics stream follow a common study programme offered by various Departments in the Year 1 and 2. At the end of the year 2, the students are selected for various honours study programmes on merit. Those who have not been selected for honours study programmes continue with the Bachelor of Science Study programme in the Year 3.

Curriculum Design and Content

The present curriculum is based on course unit system which was implemented in the year 2000. Under this system, Faculty of Science academic programme is divided into four levels:

1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000. After successfully completing first three levels, undergraduates can graduate with a B.Sc. Study Programme. But those who are enrolled in B.Sc. Honours Study programmes or in Four-year study programmes will have to complete all four levels. Under the course unit system, Department of Mathematics offers courses for five study programmes: B.Sc. in Science, B.Sc. Honours in Mathematics, B.Sc. Honours Study Programme in Statistics & Operations Research, B.Sc. Honours Study Programme in Computation & Management and B.Sc. Honours Study Programme in Applied Sciences. All courses are conducted in English medium.
