Application Deadline: There is no deadline to apply for admission, but applicants are encouraged to apply early in order to receive full consideration for financial support.
Many areas of engineering benefit greatly from their interaction with Mathematics and/or Statistics. Thus the presence of an Engineering group in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is natural. Graduate students in Mathematics and Engineering come from a variety of backgrounds: mathematics; applied mathematics; electrical engineering; mechanical engineering.
Our programs are ideally suited for students interested in a mathematical perspective on engineering. Students may enrol through either the Faculty of Applied Science or the Faculty of Arts and Science. Students enrolling through the Faculty of Applied Science, while receiving their degree from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, will receive an Engineering graduate degree, and so will have the same career options available to them as graduates from standard Engineering graduate programmes.
Research in Mathematics and Engineering and Applied Mathematics takes place in the broad areas of communication and information theory, control theory, signal processing and various fields in applied mathematics.
It is extremely important to contact potential supervisors in advance. In most cases students will receive funding from their research supervisor and so the support of a supervisor is crucial for gaining admission.
Funding packages can consist of teaching and/or research assistantships, internal and external awards. We encourage all applicants to apply for support through external granting agencies.
Graduates from the Mathematics and Engineering programs have gone on to rewarding careers in industry, finance and academia.
Master's programs: 4 years Bachelor's degree (Honours preferred) with a minimum B+ average in the third and fourth years.
Doctoral program: Master's degree with a minimum B+ average in all courses, demonstrated research potential and clear interests.
Applicants applying to complete their degree through the Faculty of Applied Science should normally have an undergraduate engineering degree.
In addition to completing an application form and providing transcripts and letters of recommendation applicants are asked to provide the following:
Those applicants whose native languages do not include English will be required to obtain a satisfactory standing in an English Language Proficiency Test as part of the application process.
