Department of Mathematics & Computer Science


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.
