Undergraduate Programmes

There are three undergraduate programmes currently being offered in SQS and they are:

  1. Bachelor of Science with Honours (Decision Science) (B.Sc. (Dec. Sc.) (Hons))
    Decision Science is a discipline of applying advanced analytical methods to help make better decisions. Decision Science knowledge can be applied in virtually every area of business and government, from health care, transportation, city planning, to manufacturing, finance and marketing. Thus, this program aims to produce students who possess knowledge and skills for scientific decision making; possess sufficient knowledge in integrating other field areas such as economy, management, humanities, as well as having knowledge in quantitative science; and apply the knowledge through practical and other lifelong learning activities. The structure of the program consists of three major parts; courses, co-curricular activities and practicum. It is structured to encourage a multi-disciplinary approach in enhancing and enriching the personal development through programming, decision support systems, simulation techniques, operational research, heuristic techniques, and research methodology. The graduates who possess qualification in this field will be able to find a stimulating and rewarding career in many potential fields especially in organizations which face challenging decision making situations where they require skilled people who can integrate many fields and equipped with good analytical skills in order to make better decisions.
