Industry partnerships

You need answers

When problems or questions requiring deep mathematical and computing knowledge arise, they cannot always be solved within your organization. University of Waterloo Mathematics researchers work in partnership with commercial companies, industry research groups and government bodies to find answers. We analyze data, design systems, optimize resources, model processes and facilitate communication methods.

Why Waterloo?

Waterloo Mathematics has an unparalleled breadth of knowledge and practice. Our people are experts in the languages of math and computing. From car air bags to medical imagery, our research teams work on applied and theoretical problems, impacting a wide variety of industries and products that people use every day. The prospect of a new or difficult problem is what stimulates our imagination. We’re driven to find answers - the answers you need to drive innovation.

Areas of applied expertise

Whether optimizing portfolios, perfecting tetherless computing networks or delivering best-practices data to health practitioners – our researchers thrive on challenge and look forward to discovering new ways of applying their skills. The list below is just a sample of the many projects Waterloo Mathematics teams have worked on in financial services, scheduling and logistics, health science, information technology and modelling and computation below.

Partnering with Waterloo Mathematics is win-win. Bring us a challenge and we’ll work with your team to understand what’s important, and together we will find the answers you need.

Learn and participate

The Faculty of Mathematics runs seminars, workshops, and other events that are open to the public.
