Webinars are a great way to learn more about the Faculty of Mathematics at Waterloo. You'll hear from a current student, experience a lecture-style presentation from a professor, hear the adventures of a Math alumnus, and get your specific admission questions answered. We hope you will join us for one of the events below!

Welcome to Waterloo Math

This interactive event will begin with a problem-solving session run either by Ian VanderBurgh or Jeff Anderson of the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) that includes a question and answer period.

The second half of this event will give you a brief overview of our university and our admissions criteria, and you'll have the chance to hear from a current Mathematics student who shares your interest in mathematics and computer science. 

These events are geared toward high school students studying within the markets listed below.

Discover your career options

Have you ever wondered what you can do with a math or computer science degree?

In the first part of this session, the professor will walk you through several math problems related to different mathematics fields. You will have a chance to ask them questions and better understand the world of math.

Next, we will introduce you to one of our alumni that did their degree at Waterloo, who will provide you with a personal account of their time in Waterloo Math and what they are doing now. We will also have a team of admission experts to answer any questions you might have about studying Mathematics at Waterloo.
