Graduate studies in Mathematics and Engineering
Many areas of engineering benefit greatly from their interaction with Mathematics and/or Statistics. Thus the presence of an Engineering group in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is natural. Graduate students in Mathematics and Engineering come from a variety of backgrounds: mathematics; applied mathematics; electrical engineering; mechanical engineering. Students may enrol through either the Faculty of Applied Science or the Faculty of Arts and Science. Students enrolling through the Faculty of Applied Science, while receiving their degree from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, will receive an Engineering graduate degree, and so will have the same career options available to them as graduates from standard Engineering graduate programmes.
The Department has active seminars in many areas, including areas related to research in Mathematics & Engineering. These seminars provide students, faculty, and postdoctoral fellows with opportunities to discuss topics of common interest.
Graduate from the Mathematics and Engineering graduate programmes have gone on to successful careers in the workplace. Our MSc graduates often continue their graduate studies at the PhD level at top universities in North America. The quality of the Mathematics and Engineering faculty and of the education our students receive is reflected in the success of our graduates.
