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 in Data Science (Data Analytics) and Specialist Diploma in Data Science (Predictive Analytics) 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.

MS offers the following one-year part-time courses that provide training in the increasingly important areas of data science and analytics.
Specialist Diploma in Data Science (Data Analytics) (NSDDA):
Data is ubiquitous in government and in industry sectors including banking, insurance, healthcare, telecommunications, manufacturing, and retail. This course provides graduates with fundamental skills in statistics and data mining that are required by jobs in these industries that involve working with data and extracting information that is useful to the business.

MS offers the following short courses.
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.
Fundamental Data Analysis using Excel 2016: This fundamental data analysis course by the School of Mathematics & Science is designed to equip you with relevant Excel skills for the purpose of analysing data in business applications. Click here for further information.
A sound foundation in mathematics, science and computing together with proficiency in their applications is indispensable for engineering and business studies.
