SSCM1002Introduction to Industrial Mathematics Programme2Semester 1Mathematics is among the most fascinating of all intellectual disciplines, the purest of all art forms, and the most challenging of games. It is a study of quantity, space, and change. Mathematicians seek out patterns, formulate new conjectures, and establish truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms, definitions and theorems. Mathematics is applied as an essential tool in many fields, including natural sciences, engineering, medicine, and the social sciences. Applied mathematics, the branch of mathematics concerned with application of mathematical knowledge to other fields, inspires and makes use of new mathematical discoveries and sometimes leads to the development of entirely new mathematical disciplines, such as statistics and operational research. Industrial mathematics is one of the strands of applied mathematics aimed at industries. The study of mathematics is not only exciting, but important: mathematicians have an opportunity to make a lasting contribution to society by helping to solve problems in such diverse fields as medicine, management, economics, government, computer science, physics, psychology, engineering, and social science. This course aims at exposing students to this wonderful world of mathematics.
