Welcome to the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science
Our computer science, mathematics and statistics faculty and instructors are top of the line, with credentials to rival other universities in and outside of Canada.
We offer Bachelor of Science undergraduate degrees in Applied Statistics, Computer Science, and Mathematics. Both Master's and Doctoral levels of study are also available. Department faculty are currently working with students studying at each of these levels, many of whom are graduate students from all over the world.
Undergraduate students may have opportunities to do research projects with our faculty, using modern facilities, for hands-on experience. Several department faculty have independent research programmes supported by agencies such as NSERC and IBM Canada, and at times, there may be collaboration with other disciplines.
During this unique time in the world, the University of Lethbridge is unable to have you on campus for awhile, so please take the time to "meet" our faculty and instructors this way. We think you'll see the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers a wide range of topics in each of our disciplines, and we're confident you will find something to appeal to your intellectual interests.
Congratulations to everyone who presented at URSCA 2020!
Due to the volume of abstracts received, student oral and poster presentations took place concurrently throughout the day. Each presentation was evaluated by two judges and the results were tabulated. The quality of the work presented led to several two-way and three-way ties in several categories. The Grand Prize Oral Presentation and Grand Prize Oral Presentation presenters, each scored 39/40! Congratulations to all presenters for their outstanding achievements in undergraduate research and their participation in a boundless day of scientific discovery.
Ulethbridge students participate in 2020 ICPC North America Championship, the first competition of its kind in North America.
“Usually, this kind of event is reserved for the world finals or some larger European regions, but I think due to the fact that ICPC is gaining more traction in America these days people decided to arrange a larger event for the teams here and I'm of course really glad they did so I could participate,” said Smolcic. “The experience was unique and exciting, and I'm very grateful to the organizers!” remarked Smolcic, when asked about his experience at the championship. “It was really cool to meet students from the other schools in Alberta, specifically U of Calgary and U of Alberta's team.”
The 2020 ICPC North America Championship took place on February 22, 2020, with the University of Lethbridge competing as one of 59 teams from the United States and Canada.
The department is a member of PIMS, the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), created in 1996 by the community of mathematical scientists in Alberta and British Columbia. It has subsequently extended to other areas.
The PIMS mandate is to promote research in the mathematical sciences; to facilitate the training of highly-qualified personnel; to enrich public awareness of and education in the mathematical sciences; and to create mathematical partnerships with similar organizations in other countries (with a particular focus on the Pacific Rim). PIMS funding includes Collaborative Research Groups, Post-Doctoral Fellowships, and individual events on a competitive basis.
