Prasiswazah FST



Mathematics Programme

Modern mathematics can be separated into two main classes; pure mathematics and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics appeals to one’s understanding of how and why the nature of the object of mathematical focus is the way it is. Applied mathematics trains a person to use pure mathematics systematically as a tool to solve various important problems in everyday life. Mastery of the interaction between these two classes of mathematics empowers one with a mindset that is ready to advance in any type of career.
