School of Mathematical Sciences FAQ

1) Where is the location of School of Mathematical Sciences?

The School of Mathematical Sciences is the nearest school to the Sungai Dua gate. (Outside this gate, you have various food restaurants and bus stop) Basically, it is very convenient to locate the School of Mathematical Sciences.

 

The School of Mathematical Sciences

Picture1

From ground floor to second floor is the School of Mathematical Sciences (The ones painted in grey) whereas from the third floor to seventh floor is the School of Computer Sciences. The main office is located at the ground floor.

 

2) Difference between Pure Mathematics and Applied Mathematics?

In Pure Mathematics, we are interested in theoretical mathematics. Pure Mathematics studies the theories and proofs of the existence of these theories that builds up the field of Mathematics.

In Applied Mathematics, we will also study theoretical mathematics but not so much in depth into it as the title suggests, we are more inclined towards the application of the theories. We apply these mathematical theories into solving real-world problems.

 

3) What are the courses offered from the School of Mathematical Science?

The School of Mathematical Sciences offers 5 courses, namely:

(i)         Pure Mathematics

In Pure Mathematics, we are interested in theoretical mathematics. Pure Mathematics studies the theories and proofs of the existence of these theories. You will be studying programming such as C++, MATLAB, and etc.
(ii)        Applied Statistics

Applied Statistics focuses on statistics stuffs like data and decision making. Remember your hypothesis testing? It is a lot on that too. Undergraduates will also be looking at the theory of probability, decision making, prediction as well as a lot on analysis. You will also study programming such as C++, MATLAB and so on.
(iii)       Operational Research

Operational research (OR) encompasses a wide range of problem-solving techniques and methods applied in the pursuit of improved decision-making and efficiency, such as simulation, mathematical optimization, queueing theory and other stochastic-process models and many more. Operational researchers faced with a new problem must determine which of these techniques are most appropriate given the nature of the system, the goals for improvement, and constraints on time and computing power.

(iv)       Mathematical Modelling

Mathematical modelling is the process of using various mathematical structures – graphs, equations, diagrams, scatterplots, tree diagrams, and so forth – to represent real world situations. Meaning, undergraduates in this course will use mathematical structures to transform problems into mathematical representation and solve it, therefore trying to solve the problems that occur.

(v)       Mathematics and Economics

This course offers you two major namely Mathematics and Economics. These 2 courses are interrelated with each other as the things you learn in Mathematics can be applied into Economics and vice versa. This course is almost like Actuarial Science, just that it is not as in depth as Actuarial Science. You will be studying about Mathematics as well as Economics.

 

4) How many units should be accumulated for graduation?

Courses Type Pure Mathematics Mathematics & Economics Other Applied Mathematics Courses
Core T 71 units 75 units 75 units

-Accumulated units above 14 in one semester.

 

11) Do we have to buy or reference books or textbooks?

It depends on the decision of lecturer. If you are lucky, your direct senior might give you free notes and reference books!

 

12) How are the lecturers and seniors?

Most of the seniors of the School of Mathematical Science are friendly and helpful. They are more than willing to assist should there be any doubts. Some of the lecturers are nice and they are willing to go the extra mile for his/her students.

 

13) What minor can we take?

In School of Mathematical Sciences, you can choose to take a minor in any of the schools in USM. Mostly, undergraduates of School of Mathematical Sciences will minor in Management, Psychology, Computer Science, Economics or Islamic Studies.

18) How to get to the School of Mathematical Sciences?

Undergraduates can hop onto Bus AC, Bus B, Bus C, Bus D and drop at Fajar Harapan bus stop. The school is just opposite the bus stop of Fajar Harapan .

 

19) What is Mathematics Society? Are undergraduates compulsory to join?

Mathematics Society is a society under the School of Mathematical Sciences. All undergraduates in the School of Mathematical Sciences are automatically members of Mathematics Society. Undergraduates are not made compulsory to join the activities of Mathematics Society, but are strongly encouraged to participate as participants or organizing committee of these activities.

 

20) Is Mathematics all about calculation?

If you think a student of the School of Mathematical Sciences is all about calculations, then you are wrong! Mathematics is, in fact, not calculation. It is a language of communication. You will realise that you will need to start reading Mathematics reference books or notes provided by your lecturer and understanding the theories in order to sit for your exams. The myth of mathematics is just about calculation is long gone once you are a student of the School of Mathematical Sciences.

 

21) Can we get enough sleep?

Unless you choose to do your tutorials or assignments last minute, there’s ample time to sleep.

PENGENALAN PROGRAM PIMPIN SISWA LESTARI

Program PIMPIN Siswa Lestari (PSL) merupakan Komponen Teras Wajib dalam rangka Sistem MyCSD (My Continuous Students Development). Sistem MyCSD diperkenalkan untuk memberi pengiktirafan terhadap penglibatan pelajar dalam program Pembangunan Siswa sepanjang pengajian mereka di USM. Setiap aktiviti pelajar di luar daripada keperluan akademik mereka akan direkodkan dalam pangkalan data secara sistematik dan transkrip MyCSD akan dikeluarkan kepada mereka selepas mereka menerima ijazah nanti.

Pengenalan sistem MyCSD berdasarkan pada matlamat utama Falsafah Pendidikan Negara iaitu untuk melahirkan graduan yang holistik dan seimbang serta harmoni dari segi intelek, rohani, emosi dan fizikal berasaskan kepercayaan teguh kepada Tuhan.

Sehubungan dengan itu, Program PIMPIN Siswa Lestari diwujudkan atas inisiatif USM untuk melatih mahasiswa/i agar lebih berdaya saing, unik, dan berkualiti selaras dengan motto USM ‘ Kami Memimpin’. Program PIMPIN Siswa Lestari ini dibangunkan selari dengan hasrat Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi dan Naib Canselor bagi tujuan pembangunan mahasiswa yang holistik serta mempunyai keupayaan untuk menggerakkan pemindahan ilmu dan agenda Inovasi, Keusahawanan dan Kelestarian USM pada tahap antarabangsa.

Program PIMPIN Siswa Lestari ini akan menggabungkan Program Kesukarelaan, Program Libat Sama Komuniti, ‘Student Knowledge Transfer SKTP’, Inovasi dan Kelestarian.

Modul World Café diperkenalkan di dalam program ini dalam usaha untuk mendedahkan para pelajar baharu tentang kaedah untuk menjana idea dan pemikiran secara berstruktur, terarah dan santai yang secara tidak langsung dapat menyemai budaya pemindahan ilmu dan penyelidikan pada peringkat awal kepada para pelajar.

Idea awal modul ini tercetus apabila Naib Canselor USM, Profesor Dato’ Dr. Omar Osman meminta Bahagian Hal Ehwal Pembangunan Pelajar dan Alumni (BHEPA) yang diketuai oleh Timbalan Naib Canselornya, Profesor Dato’ Dr. Adnan Hussien untuk merombak kembali Modul PIMPIN Siswa yang sedia ada supaya ia seiring dengan perkembangan semasa. Melalui kerjasama dengan Pusat Kajian Kelestarian Global (CGSS) yang diketuai oleh Pengarahnya iaitu Prof. Dr. Kamarulazizi Ibrahim dengan dibantu oleh staf akademik dan staf pentadbirannya, sebanyak lima buah forum dan lima buah World Café telah dibentuk dalam usaha membentuk modul yang kompehensif untuk dilaksanakan dalam Program PIMPIN Siswa Lestari.

Modul ini disusun melibatkan lima bahagian utama. Lima bahagian tersebut ialah Sains dan Kejuruteraan, Sastera dan Sains Sosial, Sains Perubatan, Qalbu dan Generik. Bahagian Sains dan Kejuruteraan, Sastera dan Sains Sosial serta Sains Perubatan merupakan bidang pengajian yang terdapat di USM. Ia cuba disusun mengikut bidang-bidang pengajian tersebut supaya mudah dilaksanakan dengan mengkategorikan mahasiswa dan mahasiswi mengikut bidang pengajian masing-masing. Tiga bahagian utama modul yang telah disusun ini memiliki tiga elemen penting iaitu elemen Kelestarian, Inovasi dan Keusahawanan.
