Graduates of disciplines belonging to natural sciences benefit from extensive scientific knowledge, as well as skills in communication, numeracy and information technology. They will also be able to solve complex problems, while making best use of resources available. Math students make use of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and diverse mathematical concepts.
