Preparing for Mathematics & Computational Science

At the Department of Mathematical & Computational Sciences, we want to encourage you to participate in three opportunities created specifically for YOU: Mathematical & Computational Sciences Orientation @ O-Week, and LAUNCH! We have seen how these programs have benefited our students in the past and cannot recommend them more. Be sure to register soon to reserve your spots.

Mathematical & Computational Sciences Departmental Orientation:

Register for O-Week here!

Everyone is encouraged to attend this important orientation event. Meet other new students, first year faculty, and learn about academic expectations. 

utm102H5F LAUNCH: Science, Mathematics and Psychology

Date: Weekly during the Fall term
Time and Room: There are 7 sections to choose from!
Register: Register for utm102H5F on ACORN.

Did you know that there is a hanging speech bubble at UTM? Do you know how to study effectively? Did you know that you can use up to 6GB of internet bandwidth per day while on campus?

Whenever starting a new journey, there are always tips and tricks to making that journey easier and more fun. Who's better at providing these tips and tricks than someone who has already been through the entire experience?

LAUNCH pairs you with a successful upper-year mentor in your academic discipline to assist you in transitioning successfully to UTM.

Here’s how LAUNCH can help you as a Mathematical & Computational Sciences student:

  • Are you interested in research?
  • Do you want to meet people studying in your field?
  • Would you like to learn how to be academically successful?
  • Do you want to find out about campus resources available to students?
  • Do you want make friends and learn about ways to relax and have fun on campus?

LAUNCH is not-for-credit - there is no homework, assignments, or tests! Instead, earn a notation on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR) for completing, in addition to learning some valuable skills, making friends, and having a good time!

Don’t miss out on all the fun! LAUNCH into your UTM experience with us!

Program Entry Requirements

Subject POSts

Students request their programs at the end of their first year, as all UofT students are admitted to a general first year program (such as Life Sciences or Humanities). You need to complete a minimum of 4.0 credits as well as any other program enrollment criteria (such as CGPA) before you can be considered for entry into a program. Please refer to the Subject POSt Guide for more information.

Math & Computational Science Program Requirements

Enrollment criteria are listed in the Academic Calendar in the yellow box under the program name. You cannot request your programs if you have completed less than 4.0 credits, so please consider this when deciding how many courses to take. Each program has different enrollment criteria, our programs and their enrollment criteria and program requirements can be found in the Academic Calendar.

What other programs? In order to complete an HBSc degree students must complete the correct combination of programs. Unless you are planning to complete a Specialist program, you will need to select at least one other program to complement your program. A full list of MCS programs can be found here. You can find a list of UTM programs organized by discipline here. I also recommend that you review the UTM Viewbook and the Registration Guide.


Depending on the major or speciailization you would like to choose after first year, you can find a list of required courses here.

Getting Involved with Your Department

Math Help

Students enrolled in MAT134, 135, 137, and 102 can seek assistance in the Math Help Room, located in Deerfield Hall (DH) room 2027. Teaching assistants (TAs) are scheduled to be in the room to help you with your questions throughout the Fall and Winter terms. Check out the schedule when classes begin!

Academic Society - MCSS

The University of Toronto Mississauga Mathematical & Computational Sciences Society was established in 2007. The society serves the needs of every student enrolled in a math, computer science, or statistics course.

The purpose of  the Hack Lab  is to:

  1. Officially represent the students
  2. Promote and achieve the common interests of the students
  3. Encourage academic, social, and career related support for the students
  4. Maintain open lines of communication between the students and the department’s faculty and staff, as well as maintain communication between the students themselves
  5. Encourage faculty and student interaction outside of the formal lecture, tutorial, and lab setting
  6. Create a space where computer science students can complete personal projects through workshops, challenges, and mentorship

For more information check out the MCSS Website.
