Aalekh Patel likes to think of mathematics as a form of journey — first you get a problem, then you write it down, and finally you figure out how you’re going to solve it. “That’s how I feel about math — it’s a compelling adventure,” said Patel. “I feel the pull towards mathematics.”
An international student from India, Patel spent many nights researching the perfect university that fit all of his needs. He was looking for a school where he’d have access to all of the tools and guidance from professors he required — and that university was UWinnipeg.

“I understood that it was not as big as other universities,” Patel said. “But as a result of that, the department and its professors are very accessible.”

Currently, Patel is working towards his Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Mathematics.
Once completed, he has high expectations for the rest of his education and future career.

“I’m considering going for a master’s degree and then my PhD,” he said. “And I would love, one day, to be a research associate or a professor.”
