Research in Combinatorics and Optimization

The Department of Combinatorics and Optimization at the University of Waterloo was the first of its kind in the world. To this day it remains the department with the largest concentration of faculty and researchers in the field. The department has won numerous accolades for its cutting edge research and it continues to be a leading centre for teaching and research in the theories and applications of these disciplines. We provide students with a unique set of courses that are both of theoretical interests and relevant to today’s market place.

Working with our faculty members, we encourage research for all academic levels.
