The Department of Applied Mathematics has 30 faculty members and over 100 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. 27, 2023Applied Math professor Anita Layton receives John L. Synge Award
Anita Layton, a professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Canada 150 Research Chair of Mathematical Biology and Medicine, has been selected as the recipient of the John L. Synge Award for 2023. The award, which will be presented by the Royal Society of Canada in November, was named after one of the first mathematicians working in Canada to obtain international recognition through research in mathematics. It recognizes outstanding research in any of the branches of the mathematical sciences.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is co-ordinated within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
