About

Intellectual curiosity, a passion for problem-solving and a drive to conduct independent research are the hallmarks of our mathematics and statistics graduate students. The faculty of the Mathematics and Statistics program at University of Calgary have helped many graduates succeed in moving on to leading doctoral programs.

Overview

By the time you graduate the Mathematics and Statistics program at University of Calgary, you will have contributed to current research in your chosen area of specialization. This might be in a pure mathematical area such as combinatorics, discrete mathematics, geometry, logic, number theory and cryptography, analysis, and mathematical physics, or in theoretical research in probability and statistics. Or you may work in industrial mathematics and operations research, with application in biology and medicine, energy markets and mathematical finance, geoscience, medical imaging, oil and gas, software and computer applications, biomedical and industrial statistics, environmental risk, actuarial science and big data analysis.
