 Applied Mathematics
Our affiliation with the Institute of Applied Mathematics (UBC) gives the Department of Mathematics strength in classical Applied Mathematics, and in novel applications in many interdisciplinary areas. More information about the detailed programs available to graduate students through this Institute can be found on the home page Many of us are members of the Canadian Applied and Industrial Mathematics Society, (CAIMS).

See our listing of Courses in Applied Mathematics.
