University rank #942 (BCR) ,
The Modelling and Computational Science master's program, led by an interdisciplinary faculty team, is at the confluence of mathematics, science and computer science and teaches students how to use mathematical modelling when studying real-world phenomena.

About

Mathematical modeling is an important tool in the study of physical and biological phenomena. The field of computational science combines the implementation of mathematical models, computer algorithms and knowledge in a particular area of application in order to provide an additional tool for the study of phenomena and, in particular, to facilitate the study of problems that are intractable or difficult to study using other approaches. 

Mathematical models and computational science are powerful methods to study problems such as atmospheric phenomena; climate variability; molecular behavior of matter; protein folding; option pricing in financial markets; and many other physical, biological, medical, environmental and economic problems.

The Master of Science (MSc) program in Modelling and Computational Science takes advantage of the interdisciplinary nature of the Faculty of Science and collaborating faculties to offer students a program of study that introduces them to all aspects of the modeling process. 

The university's membership in the Shared Hierarchical Research Computer Network (SHARCNET), the Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform (SOSCIP) and the advanced local computing infrastructure provides access to state-of-the-art computational facilities.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    83

    The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.

  • Minimum required score:

    560

    The TOEFL®PBT is administered in a paper format and measures your ability to use and understand English in a classroom setting at the college or university level. It accurately measures how well you can listen, read and write in English while performing academic tasks. Read more about TOEFL®PBT.

  • Minimum required score:

    6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 3

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

General Requirements

Admission requirements:
  • Application form
  • Two letters of recommendation 
  • One unofficial transcript of each previous undergraduate and graduate transcript
  • One- to two-page statement of academic intent
  • Photocopy of your degree parchment(s)
