Professor Ho Chee Kit
School of Mathematical Sciences
In the School of Mathematical Sciences, we are committed in producing highly employable graduates with strong mathematical, analytical and communication skills, and nurturing an excellent School with expertise in mathematical science research.
Over the years, we have witnessed students joining us with high hopes and great determination, and it is only important we ensure that they will be industry-ready by the time they graduate, well-equipped with the knowledge and tools to make a difference in their profession.
Our signature programme, the BSc (Hons) in Actuarial Studies, provides a pathway to qualified actuary status and is recognised by global actuarial professional bodies — the Society of Actuaries and Casualty Actuarial Society from the USA, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries from the UK, and the Institute of Actuaries of Australia. The majority of our graduates are successfully hired into the right industry thanks to our in-house consulting actuaries who teach, guide and provide highly relevant practical knowledge and latest industry needs.
As for research, mathematics will continue to play a significant and important role. In embracing the uncertainties and hazards in a changing environment coupled with unpredictable events such as climate change, natural disasters and financial crises, uncovering new mathematical models to provide creative and innovative solutions to these real-life problems will be the major concern for all.
Sunway University’s unique ties with Oxford University and Cambridge University will provide our students the chance to experience a high level of intellectual discourse through the exposure to authentic Oxford- and Cambridge-type of mathematics, opening their minds to the most recent findings and up-to-date techniques in the most advanced field and paving the way for future astonishing discoveries.
With the commitment and dedication shown by our academics including our in-house consulting actuaries, and the resolve of our administrative support staff, we have created an environment for all our students to flourish.
Together we can make a difference.
