Applied Statistics Numbers are all around us. From the thickness of the ozone layer to infant mortality rates, from the cost of beer to the chances of contracting AIDS, the world is permeated with quantity. Most of the quantitative information we have is incomplete, or an estimate, or an average, or the result of inexact measurement. This does not mean the information is useless. What it means is that to consider yourself well-educated, you must be able to extract knowledge from numerical data that are subject to random error.

Computer Science is concerned in the broadest sense with the study of computers and of applications of computers. Its development was stimulated by the use of computers in many areas, such as Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Statistics, and Business, yet Computer Science involves much more than just developing techniques for these application areas.

Information Security is a program offered under Computer Science. It is an interdisciplinary blend of Computer Science and Mathematics. Students will learn about cryptography, network security and digital forensics.

Mathematical Sciences teaches one to think analytically and creatively. It is a foundation for advanced careers in a knowledge-based economy. Students who develop strong backgrounds in mathematics often have distinct advantages in other fields such as physics, computer science, economics, and finance.

Bioinformatics. Admissions to the Bioinformatics Specialist Program (ERSPE1868) are administratively suspended as of 2023-2024. Summer 2023 is the final opportunity for students to request enrolment in this subject post. Students enrolled in the program will be allowed to continue.
