The Department of Applied Mathematics has 25 faculty members and over 70 graduate students. We offer undergraduate plans in Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Physics that attract outstanding students. The wide range of interdisciplinary research being undertaken in the department provides a stimulating environment for our graduate program.

The department has research programs in

- Control and Dynamical Systems (including differential equations)
- Fluid Mechanics
- Mathematical Medicine and Biology
- Mathematical Physics
- Scientific Computing

Please take a look at the short video below highlighting some of the department's research in mathematical medicine/biology and fluid mechanics.

University of Waterloo Dept. of Applied Mathematics researchers are discussing how their work helps to build tools used to tackle a broad range of problems that affect us all.

- Sep. 6, 2019Award-winning combination: Math + Medicine
Colin Phipps (PhD ’14) always loved math and computer science, but he always wanted to apply those skills to a high impact field.

- Sep. 6, 2019Applied Mathematics Professor awarded CFI funding
Anita Layton (Professor of Applied Mathematics, Pharmacy, and Biology) received $100,000 in funding through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) John R. Evans Leaders Fund (JELF). The award will fund infrastructure needed to support Layton's Canada 150 Research Chair research program, and to establish the Virtual Physiological Human Laboratory.

- Sep. 4, 2019New mathematical model can improve radiation therapy of brain tumours
Researchers have developed a new model to optimize radiation therapy and significantly increase the number of tumour cells killed during treatment.
