The undergraduate program in Mathematics (hereafer called UPM) provides learning process in mathematics and related fields. The UPM gives students strong fundamental mathematical knowledge, that allows them to pursue a higher degree or to work in various fields.Aside from formulating and exploring new fundamental theoretical knowledge, the study of Mathematics also focuses on quantifying a problem (from everyday life) as a mathematical model and then finding a solution to the model. In pursuing a degree at the Mathematics Study Program, students are trained with the skill of mathematical modelling in solving everyday problem. Equipped with strong fundamental Mathematical knowledge, students are able to generalize and extrapolate the Mathematical model of natural and social phenomenon from the simplest case to a more sophisticated model of a complicated problem. One example is a traffic congestion problem encountered in big cities. This problem may be formulated into a mathematical model, where an optimal solution may be deduced.The faculty members who teach at the UPM are grouped into five research divisions, namely Analysis and Geometry, Algebra, Combinatorial Mathematics, Financial and Industrial Mathematics, and Statistics. Students are given options to choose elective courses and topics for their “Skripsi” (final projects) in many areas of applications of mathematics and statistics, including actuarial science.
Thus, it is not true that a Mathematics graduate will end up only as a Mathematics teacher. The fact is that many Mathematics graduates work successfully in various fields other than education, such as industries, manufactures, finance and banking, and information technology.
It is our belief that one pursues the study of mathematics with objectives: as a science and as a tool for other fields. Mathematics is an intrinsic component of science, part of its fabric, its universal language and indispensable source of intellectual tools. Reciprocally, science inspires and stimulates mathematics, posing new questions, engendering new ways of thinking, and ultimately conditioning the value system of mathematics. Therefore, we encourage our students to take between 6 and 12 credits from courses offered by other study programmes. Thus, our students are able to mingle or interacts with nonmathematics students and familiar themselves with subjects other than mathematics.
We acknowledge the wide range in interests and needs by incorporating flexibility in the curriculum. The UPM offers plenty elective courses. After completing Common First Year Program (TPB), students have to complete at least 108 credits consisting of 8 credits from ITB compulsory courses and 100 credits from mathematics and mathematics-related courses. Almost half out of these 100 credits are from elective courses. There are two kinds of elective courses, Semi-restricted Electives (24 credits) and Restricted Electives (20 credits). One benefits of such flexibility is that students can design their study by selecting elective courses that meet their interests, talents, and needs.Restricted Elective Courses.
UPM students are required to take 20 credit points from Restricted Elective Courses. Each student has to take at least one course (4 credits each) from each of the following five groups of courses:
- (Algebra) MA3021 Algebraic Structures or MA3022 Linear Algebra,
- (Geometry) MA3041 Introduction to Differential Geometry or MA3042 Geometry
- (Probability and Statistics) MA3281 Mathematical Statistics or MA4181 Introduction to Stochastic Processes.
- (Network) MA3051 Introduction to Graph Theory or MA4151 Cryptography or MA4251 Coding Theory.
- (Optimization) MA3071 Introduction to Optimization or MA3072 Partial Differential Equations.
Semi-restricted Elective Courses.
Students must pass at least 12 credit points from courses offered by the UPM (minimum 8 credits from fourth year courses), and at least 6 credit points from other study programs (minimum 4 credits from third or fourth year courses). For UPM students participating in minor program, they must pass 12-18 credits offered by the selected study program.
