Students working at a whiteboard

Welcome to the Faculty of Mathematics!

As a graduate student, you’ll be working with the world’s largest centre of mathematicians and computer scientists. We have the breadth and depth of knowledge, experience and expertise to excel in both academic pursuits and the application of our skills to real-world problems.

We’re focused on innovation. Our professors, students, and institutes explore a broad range of areas and ideas in math and computer science – from foundational theory to applied research and commercial solutions. Plus, inter-disciplinary research is important at University of Waterloo. Our people look for connections between subjects, departments and schools and industry, opening the doors to new methods and discovery.
