Honours Mathematics and Statistics Co-op (B.Sc.)


Honours Mathematics and Statistics Co-op Programs


Co-op opportunities in Mathematics and Statistics are available in combination with the sub-plans. Enrolment in these programs is limited. Selection is based on academic achievement and an interview but requires, as a minimum, submission of the on-line application by the stated deadline, and completion of a Level II Honours Mathematics and Statistics program with a Grade Point Average of at least 5.0. Information about the program and the selection procedure may be obtained from the Science Career and Cooperative Education Office.

Notes


  1. These are five-level (year) co-op programs which include two eight-month work terms which must be spent in mathematics or statistics related placements.
  2. Students must be registered in a full-load and take a full academic program as prescribed, by Level and Term.
  3. Students are required to complete SCIENCE 2C00  and SCIENCE 3C00  before the first work placement and are strongly recommended to complete SCIENCE 2C00  in Level II.
  4. Students must satisfy a Scientific Computing requirement, by completing one of: COMPSCI 1MD3 , MATH 1MP3 , PHYSICS 2G03 . Students who entered the program prior to September 2017 may use one of MATH 2E03, 2T03 3MB3 3Q03*  or STATS 2MB3  to satisfy this requirement. It is recommended that students in Mathematics Sub-Plan (Co-op) complete this requirement prior to their first work term.
