The Institute of Applied Mathematics promotes interdisciplinary research in the mathematical sciences at UBC by bringing together students and faculty who do mathematical work within a variety of disciplines. The Institute’s faculty and student members come from many different departments and faculties across the university, including the physical, chemical, biological, and engineering sciences. Students affiliated with the IAM pursue interdisciplinary masters and doctoral studies in applied and computational mathematics.
About the IAM
Graduate studies at the IAM
To affiliate with the Institute, a student must first be admitted to an academic department and must state his/her intention to follow an IAM program. The IAM is not a degree-granting department, so cannot admit students directly. Students usually choose a department based on their interests and background, and on the availability of financial support. A potential supervisor does not necessarily have to be from the same department. Many IAM students are registered in the Mathematics Department, and we also have students registered in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Geography, Geophysics, Mechanical Engineering, Oceanography, Physics, and Zoology.
