Engineering Mathematics

While the subject of engineering mathematics, as the name suggests, blends both engineering and mathematics, some universities park the subject under ‘Computational Sciences’ as they see it as being “at the intersection of mathematics, computing, engineering and applied sciences”. Some ask for a graduation background in engineering while some others ask for a background in Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science or Engineering. Whatever the nomenclature, the discipline has great practical applications with opportunities to work either in research centres or the corporate sector, and will certainly involve great deal of mathematical analysis and computational capabilities. The emphasis on specific areas of work varies across universities.

Following is an indicative coverage of universities offering both Masters and PhD programmes in the subject. You should carry out further search based on what interests you.

The Dalhousie University offers both MSc and PhD in engineering mathematics “designed for students who have already completed an undergraduate program in Mathematics, Physics, Computer Science, or Engineering”. They have many current research projects.
