Research in the Faculty of Mathematics

Waterloo is home to the world's largest centre of mathematicians and computer scientists. We have the breadth and depth of knowledge, experience and expertise to excel in both academic pursuits and the application of our skills to real-world problems.

Everyone is welcome to attend our weekly research seminars.

We're focused on innovation. Our professors, students, and institutes explore a broad range of areas and ideas in math and computer science from foundational theory to applied research and commercial solutions. Plus, inter-disciplinary research is important at the University of Waterloo. Our people look for connections between subjects, departments and schools and industry, opening the doors to new methods and discovery.

Our Faculty has four departments – Applied Math, Combinatorics and Optimization, Pure Math, Statistics and Actuarial Sciences – and one school, the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science. Within these units are world-renowned researchers in the mathematical and computer sciences. We explore cutting edge technologies like computer graphics and quantum computing, applied areas such as databases and portfolio optimization and foundational math problems in areas like number theory and combinatorics.

If you're looking for an exciting academic opportunity or some expertise to solve industrial or commercial problems, join Waterloo Math. You'll find lots of information here on the subject areas and people in Math. Be sure to check out our news stories which include features on some of our most exciting research accomplishments.
