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.
