Solid skills in quantitative and computational modelling are now required for many of the most interesting and rewarding high-end jobs in banks, technology companies, industry and government. These skills are also crucial for progress in academic research in increasingly many fields.
University of Waterloo's Centre for Computational Mathematics offers undergraduate and masters degrees in Computational Mathematics that precisely teach those key quantitative and computational modelling skills.
What is Computational Mathematics?
- Mathematical models and methods arise in a wide variety of fields, including business and finance, data science, engineering, science, machine learning, and medicine.
- The application of mathematics-inspired computational methods and models has revolutionized these fields and is one of the most significant achievements of the computer age and the data age.
- Computational Mathematics at the University of Waterloo is an innovative, multidisciplinary program whose focus lies in the intersection of mathematics, statistics and computer science.
- Students in the program are exposed to a range of theme areas within the discipline and learn an area of application.
- Graduates of the program will be able to deploy effectively a wide range of mathematical, statistical and computational techniques to solve large problems in science, industry, big data and commerce; to develop, enhance and maintain the relevant software tools; and to communicate results of complex methods and models to end-users.
