The Department of Mathematics will host the 8th HKUST UG Math Competition on Saturday, 29 April 2023 from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon at HKUST. The competition consists of the following two categories of written tests:

  • Junior Competition: This is restricted to HKUST first- and second-year undergraduate students. Problems will be drawn from calculus, multivariable and vector calculus, linear algebra, real analysis, and other sources.

  • Senior Competition: This is open to all HKUST undergraduates. Problems can include materials from any undergradate mathematics courses, and other sources.

Both competitions will test ingenuity in mathematics in addition to mathematical knowledge.

For the past papers of the competition, you may visit for reference. The top three scores of each category of tests will receive cash awards in a ceremony to be held on Thursday, 1 June 2023.

The Department of Mathematics expresses appreciation to Jane Street Asia Limited as a co-sponsor of the competition. As part of their sponsorship, winners may be invited to visit Jane Street.
