We are 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. Waterloo is home to one of the world's largest centres of mathematicians and computer scientists, with 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.
In the Faculty of Mathematics, our faculty members are supported by the Associate Dean of Research, who facilitates opportunities for our experts to advance their research and career. The Mathematics Research Office (MRO) builds and broadens our relationships with funding agencies, sponsors, societies, government agencies and industry leaders. We develop connections for our world-class researchers, foster interdisciplinary research and advance innovation.
