Why Study Mathematics & Engineering at Queen's?


Also known as "APPLE MATH"

Math & Engineering Communications

Modern electrical, mechanical, communications, control, and artificial intelligence systems require sophisticated mathematical tools. The Queen's Mathematics and Engineering program offers an engineering education that is second to none, equipping you with a highly-sought after set of skills. The Queen's Mathematics and Engineering program is the only engineering program in North America that is offered by a mathematics department.  What sets it apart from other engineering programs is its unique blend of sophisticated engineering and advanced mathematics.

Math & Engineering

Unique Programs

In addition to taking engineering courses in subjects related to their area of specialization, Mathematics and Engineering students benefit from very high level, tailor-made, mathematically-enriched courses, which have no equivalent in traditional engineering undergraduate programs. As a result, students in the program learn engineering principles with a mathematical depth that is unseen in any other North-American engineering program, and graduate not only with a deep engineering expertise in their area of specialization, but also with exceptionally strong analytical and problem solving skills. This investment in the mathematical fundamentals of engineering affords them an exceptional competitive edge when targeting engineering jobs in industry and graduate study opportunities at top engineering schools.

Graduate School Opportunities

Mathematics and Engineering graduates who choose to pursue graduate studies are routinely admitted into the best graduate programs in the world.

Competitive Industry Careers

Mathematics and Engineering graduates land the most competitive industry positions. The very strong grounding in mathematics that our students possess also affords them tremendous versatility upon graduation, allowing them to easily branch out of engineering and into any career that makes use of strong analytical and problem solving skills, and, over the years, numerous Mathematics and Engineering graduates have successfully pursued and excelled in careers such as finance and management consulting.

Canadian Engineering Accreditation

Graduates of the program are eligible for registration as professional engineers, the program having been fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board since 1974.

Queen's Mathematics and Engineering graduate of 2017.

Currently a graduate student at the University of Washington in Seattle

I am doing an MS degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics, focusing on optimization and control theory. I have found that in my courses, the rigorous background in mathematics that Apple Math provides is like no other program. Many of the courses I have taken at the graduate level have overlapped, sometimes completely, with core courses in the Apple Math program! Yes, Apple Math can be challenging, but the interesting theory you learn, the people you meet, and the professors who are always willing to answer your questions will make it worth your while.

I had an amazing experience in the Apple Math program, and would recommend it to anyone interested in mathematics and up for a challenge!

The engineering projects that I have read from fourth-year students in the Queen's Mathematics and Engineering program show a level of sophistication that is rare at the undergraduate level.

These (MTHE) students will be exceptionally well-prepared for graduate research in a variety of disciplines within engineering and applied mathematics.

These students will be exceptionally well-prepared for graduate research in a variety of disciplines within engineering and applied mathematics. I hope this program's top students will consider Harvard when applying to graduate school.
