A powerhouse of discovery and innovation
As North America's only dedicated Faculty of Math, we are nationally and internationally recognized as one of the top schools for Mathematics and Computer Science.
With nearly $30 million in research funding (2019/20) and an alumni network of over 45,000 across more than 100 countries, our students, faculty, and graduates continue to push the boundaries of research to discover new ways to harness the power of mathematics, computer science, and statistics.
A team of researchers at the University of Waterloo and Dalhousie University have developed a method for forecasting the short-term progression of an epidemic using extremely limited amounts of data.
Rural and remote communities in Canada often rely on satellites to access the internet, but those connections are fraught – with many glitches and service interruptions because the technology can be unreliable.
Computer science and software engineering students made up the dynamic team that created PearPiano, a winning entry at the recent Hack the North hackathon.
The University-wide puzzle-solving competition IS BACK for 2023! Organized and run by volunteers from the Faculty of Mathematics, the challenge is designed to be a team-based community engagement and development activity that encourages undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, alumni, staff, and faculty members to work together in groups of 3-6 to solve a series of puzzles over from September 27-30. The first team to solve all puzzles and submit their team’s key at the secret location on campus will be crowned the 2023 Enigma Cup Champions!
Join us for a the kick-off event on September 21, in the DC 1301. Refreshments will be served
Waterloo Math and Engineering are delighted to host an alumni reception in Seattle in October. At this pub and games night, you will enjoy great food and cocktails as well as fun games (billiards, ping pong & shuffleboard) while you personally connect with fellow University of Waterloo alumni from Math and Engineering.
Cost is $15 per person. Each ticket includes two drinks, appetizers and games.
Who will win the Enigma Cup for 2023? Join us to find out the winners of Key Clues, the campus-wide puzzle-solving competition. The winners will be revealed, prizes awarded, and refreshments served!
