Application for Graduate Studies:
Queen's provides an ideal environment to do graduate study in
Mathematics and Engineering, Applied Mathematics or Mathematics
or Statistics. Our course curriculum is rigorous and
increasingly diverse. The applicants should follow the
guidelines listed here.
Typically students with backgrounds in mathematics / applied
mathematics/ electrical and computer engineering / systems
(mechanical, systems, industrial, aerospace) engineering with
strong interests in mathematical sciences will find the graduate
program very stimulating and rewarding.
Our research environment is enhanced by a very active group of graduate students. There is always a steady stream of visiting scholars and post-doctoral fellows.
