PROBLEM. ANALYSIS. SOLUTION.
Welcome to the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science
Our computer science, mathematics and statistics faculty and instructors are top of the line, with credentials to rival other universities in and outside of Canada.
We offer Bachelor of Science undergraduate degrees in Applied Statistics, Computer Science, and Mathematics. Both Master's and Doctoral levels of study are also available. Department faculty are currently working with students studying at each of these levels, many of whom are graduate students from all over the world.
Undergraduate students may have opportunities to do research projects with our faculty, using modern facilities, for hands-on experience. Several department faculty have independent research programmes supported by agencies such as NSERC and IBM Canada, and at times, there may be collaboration with other disciplines.

U of L researchers awarded more than $1.8 million in NSERC funding
Congratulations to Dr. Hadi Kharaghani, one of eleven uLethbridge researchers who have been awarded Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Discovery Grants!
“University of Lethbridge researchers were very successful this year, with 11 out of 14 applications being awarded funding,” says Dr. Erasmus Okine, U of L vice-president (Research). “This funding of almost $2 million demonstrates the calibre of research our scientists are engaged in and I congratulate each one of them.”
Mitacs award winner takes studies overseas to Italy
Have you ever wanted to combine your studies with your interest in traveling overseas? Austin Kothig is a computer science student who had the wonderful opportunity to do just that, by completing a semester abroad in Italy during Fall 2018.
Kothig was awarded the Mitacs Globalink Research Award through collaboration between University of Lethbridge neuroscience professor, Dr. Matthew Tata, and Dr. Francesco Rea from the Department of Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Science at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Genoa, Italy.
