Double Majors

B.Sc. Mathematics and Computer Science

The courses required for the Double Major in Mathematics and Computer Science are the courses required for the Major in Mathematics and the Major in Computer Science with the exception of MAE233.

Double Majors with other Sciences

  • B.Sc. Mathematics and Physics
  • B.Sc. Mathematics and Space Science
  • B.Sc. Mathematics and Chemistry
  • B.Sc. Computer Science and Physics
  • B.Sc. Computer Science and Space Science
