The MSc in mathematics is a unique blend of pure and applied mathematics, offering practical experience in applications in science, finance, and mathematical modelling for new technologies. One of the main goals of the program is to provide graduates with strong skills applicable across many disciplines. Research experience through a thesis or project provides students with the opportunity to examine modern problems in depth.

Our students will have excellent employment opportunities in industry and financial institutions in North America and around the world. They will also gain background knowledge to continue their studies towards a PhD.
