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.
