Mathematics  BSc
Program Overview
In today’s world, mathematics plays an important role in climate research, data science, cryptography, and artificial intelligence. The American University in Cairo's (AUC) mathematics major prepares students for advanced study in mathematics and other fields and enables them to work in related areas in industry and teaching. Students study various topics, including calculus, discrete mathematics, probability, statistics, differential equations, optimization, linear and abstract algebra, real and complex analysis, number theory, formal logic, and graph theory.
Program Objectives
Graduates of the mathematics program will be able to:
 Apply their knowledge in the modern industry or teaching, or secure acceptance in highquality graduate programs in mathematics and other fields such as the field of quantitative/mathematical finance, mathematical computing, statistics, and actuarial science
 Communicate effectively both orally and in writing
 Work effectively in teams
 Exhibit ethical and professional behavior
Learning Outcomes
 Formulate and analyze mathematical and statistical problems, precisely define the key terms, and draw clear and reasonable conclusions
 Use mathematical and statistical techniques to solve welldefined problems and present their mathematical work, both in oral and written format, to various audiences (students, mathematicians, and nonmathematicians)Read, understand and construct correct mathematical and statistical proofs and use the library and electronic databases to locate information on mathematical problems
 Explain the importance of mathematics and its techniques to solve reallife problems and provide the limitations of such techniques and the validity of the results
 Propose new mathematical and statistical questions and suggest possible software packages and/or computer programming to find solutions to these questions
 Continue to acquire mathematical and statistical knowledge and skills appropriate to professional activities and demonstrate the highest standards of ethical issues in mathematics
Statistics and Data Analysis
As an option within the bachelor's degree in mathematics, students may choose to study statistics and data analysis.
Double Major
Doublemajoring in mathematics together with another program from the School of Sciences and Engineering is a winning strategy and is very popular in the department. Candidates should note that several SSE courses can be counted for the fulfillment of both the mathematics and another program, and this doublecounting will normally allow students to complete both the mathematics program and another one by adding at most one or two semesters (9 to 30 credits) to the total required by their “other” major, depending on what this other major is and on how many general electives a particular student is required to take.
 For a double major in Actuarial Science and Mathematics, consult with Noha Youssef, assistant professor and director of Actuarial Science by emailing nayoussef@aucegypt.edu.
 For a double major in Data Science and Mathematics, consult with Ali Hadi, a distinguished university professor by emailing ahadi@aucegypt.edu
 For any other questions on doublemajoring in Mathematics and other majors consult with Michel Hébert, professor emeritus by emailing mhebert@aucegypt.edu, or Daoud Siniora, assistant professor by emailing daoud.siniora@aucegypt.edu.
