The School of Mathematics & Science offers modules in mathematics, computing and science (physics) for students enrolled in the engineering, technology and business courses. These modules form an important part of the full-time curriculum.
A sound foundation in mathematics, science and computing together with proficiency in their applications, help students develop analytical, logical thinking, and problem solving skills. These provide an important foundation for students to achieve life-long learning in the future.
We also offer courses such as the Specialist Diploma course in Statistics & Data Mining and other short courses to our graduates and the public.
Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP)
This is a one-year practice-oriented curriculum offered to polytechnic-bound Normal (Academic) students for a seamless integration into the course of their choice in SP.

Preparatory and Bridging Programmes
Preparatory Mathematics Programme: This is designed for newly enrolled students with Elementary Mathematics only in their GCE O-level examination. Its aim is to prepare students for their course of study by reviewing some of the fundamental mathematical concepts and skills. Click here for further information.
Bridging Mathematics for ITE Upgraders: This provides ITE upgraders who enrol into SP's engineering courses a structured bridging mathematics programme to strengthen their mathematics foundation to enable them to better cope with the demands of their respective Engineering course. Click here for further information.
MS also offers advanced programmes in Mathematics and Physics for Engineering and Info-Technology students. The training is to help the students build a solid foundation in mathematics to prepare them for further studies. The training will also develop their analytical, logical thinking and problem solving skills.

The Specialist Diploma in Statistics and Data Mining (NSSDM) is a part-time course offered by MS. This course is designed to meet the growing needs for expertise in statistical analysis and data mining using relevant analytical tools and systems.
Preparatory Mathematics for University (PMU): This course aims to strengthen the foundation of polytechnic graduates in mathematics to prepare them for university education, particularly in the field of engineering and IT. It is also designed to bridge the gap between the calculus at the polytechnic diploma level and the calculus at the first year university level. Click here for further information.
Preparatory Physics for University (PPU): This course aims to strengthen the physics foundation of polytechnic graduates to prepare them for university education. Participants will receive the training needed to solve physics problems, building on their knowledge of mathematics and basic calculus. Click here for further information.
