Mathematical and Statistical Sciences

About the Department

The Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Alberta is engaged in a wide range of research, teaching, and outreach activities.

Research: With almost 60 regular faculty members, we are able to pursue many exciting directions of research representing the full spectrum of pure and applied mathematics and statistics. Our 130+ graduate students and 15+ postdoctoral fellows and research associates value our pleasant working environment and study atmosphere.

Teaching: To our students we offer an outstanding and continuously evolving learning and study environment. Driven by the ambition to assist our students in developing the best possible foundation for their professional careers, we incorporate technology into teaching and learning in multiple and often innovative ways. This effort has been consistently recognized in the form of numerous awards earned by our faculty, awards extended by a variety of parties, from the department level all the way to the Canadian national level.

Outreach: The scope of our activities extends far beyond the physical boundaries of the UA-Campus, be it via direct engagement with school teachers and their students or by lending our expertise to the private sector.
