Welcome to the Department of Mathematics at Simon Fraser University.
We have compiled information on our website to help you get started if you are arriving directly from school or college, or returning as a mature student. Feel free to check out our information regarding prospective and current students.
Our faculty consist of professors and lecturers who value research and teaching. You will find them approachable, helpful and knowledgeable. Do not hesitate to approach a faculty and ask for guidance, whether it is with your academic plan, choosing a course, or understanding mathematical material, and they will point you in the right direction.
If you are a student seeking a career in mathematics you have come to the right place. At SFU the student has all the courses needed to attain expertise in the exciting fields of applied and pure mathematics. Starting from the calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations the student can go on to ponder the mysteries of number theory, the geometry of curved spaces, areas with important applications in data security, computer design and cosmology. At the same time the student will learn how to use modern computer techniques in many of these areas.
