The Bachelor of Science Program in Mathematics is a 240 ECTS program and is to be completed in 8 regular semesters. The program is designed to train students in the theory of mathematics and to develop mathematical skills and mastery, used in the modern applications of mathematics in science and engineering. Through specialized courses as part of mathematics elective and technical elective requirements, students will have the opportunity to deepen and broaden their mathematical foundations and skills, which will make them more competitive in the mathematics-related job market and/or will prepare them for graduate studies in the area of pure and applied mathematics or statistics. Flexibility in selecting non-mathematics electives will also allow students to complete a minor in a different discipline.

2 Kazakh Language/Literature courses. MATH 499 Graduation Project

Short description

MATH 499 Graduation Project is a 6-ECTS elective, which is counted towards the mathematics core elective credit requirement. The goal of the course is to engage the student in original thinking and independent work towards the creation of a capstone thesis under the supervision of an experienced faculty. Courses may change year to year.
