The School of Mathematical Sciences is one of six Schools in the College of Sciences & Health. It comprises two departments:

  • Department of Pure & Applied Mathematics

  • Department of Statistics & Commercial Mathematics

The aim of the School is to develop students' Mathematical abilities and appreciation, particularly in the context of the real-world. Our courses provide a sound foundation of mathematical principles together with a range of modelling and computer skills with an emphasis on problem-solving techniques. This integrated approach ensures that our graduates possess excellent technical, analytical and problem-solving skills, well-suited to the modern commercial and industrial environments, as well as more traditional careers in teaching and research. The School is committed to facilitating those interested in retraining and upskilling.

The School offers opportunities to study pure & applied mathematics, statistics and operations research at undergraduate and postgraduate levels either part time or full time. In addition, it provides teaching across a wide range of certificate and degree courses administered by other Schools throughout Dublin Institute of Technology.

The School of Mathematical Sciences has strong research interests and a number of postgraduate students studying for the degrees of MPhil and PhD in disciplines across mathematics. It provides a vibrant research atmosphere with regular seminars and staff engaged in research at the forefront of their specialism. The Mathematical Modelling Centre (MMC) and the Statistical Advice Unit (SAU) provide interaction and links with researchers, both within the Institute and with other institutions and commercial businesses.

The School is very active in the wider community hosting activities and visiting primary and secondary schools. It participates in national Maths week every October, National Science week every November and the SciFest Competition. If your would like to arrange a visit or participate in one of these events please contact us.
