Mathematics and Statistics

Mathematics and Statistics offers a range of courses which will equip students with the necessary mathematical expertise to deal with problems encountered in an increasingly technological world.


Mathematics and Statistics

The department currently has 14 full-time academic staff, 4 part time academic staff and 3 administration staff. Students in the Department are mainly studying towards Bachelor of Science degrees in Actuarial Science and Mathematics, both 3-year programmes

Staff in the department have been very successful in attracting competitive research and equipment grants. Research is a very important component of the Department’s activities and this has resulted in a healthy number of PhD students, averaging between 25 to 30 annually over the last five years.

The Department has maintained good links with a number of overseas institutions. This year, we have run several workshops in Thailand and Indonesia. The academic exchanges are very important to the Department and we are always keen to forge new links. The Department’s income from international students has steadily increased over the past years and now constitutes over 20% of the annual budget.
