The Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics opened on January 1, 2015. This online 4-year Bachelor’s degree in mathematics, which is geared towards applications across a wide variety of scientific and math-related disciplines, is the first of its kind in Canada.
“The Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics is an advanced program that fosters innovative thinking towards the solutions of scientific, environmental, and even sociological issues using mathematical methods. Students will develop a deeper understanding and alternative perspectives of problems in math-related interdisciplinary fields,” says Dr. Lisa Carter, the dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology.
The program will prepare students for careers in engineering, computing sciences, life sciences, statistics, bioinformatics, environmental science, finance and economics, ecology and epidemiology. Graduates of the program will have the opportunity to continue their career at the graduate level.
