The Faculty of Science, which houses the Department of Mathematics and Computing Science, has gone through significant renewal in the past decade, with many new and active faculty involved in teaching and research. Our facilities have also been renewed and all space hous-ing members of the Faculty of Science and the Department of Mathematics and Computing Science have been recently renovated and upgraded. We are working to establish and build upon areas of distinct research strength, and foster collaborations locally, regionally, and internationally.
Saint Mary’s University is located in the historic port city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, a vibrant, urban community of over 430,000 people. Halifax is a major educational centre for Atlantic Canada and is home to five universities.
