16 Mar 2018: DIT student receives Hamilton Prize in Mathematics

Oliwia Jarosz, a final-year student of the School of Mathematical Sciences, received the Royal Irish Academy 2017 Hamilton Prize in Mathematics during a ceremony on 25 January 2018. The Hamilton Prize is a prestigious prize awarded annually by the Royal Irish Academy to each of the top undergraduate mathematics students on the island of Ireland as nominated by each of their higher education institutions. Oliwia was the very deserving winner for Dublin Institute of Technology.

The ceremony took place at Academy House, Dawson Street, Dublin and was a happy occasion. Oliwia was due to receive the 2017 prize in October last year but the ceremony was postponed due to storm Ophelia. Nonetheless, it was a very enjoyable event and we congratulate Oliwia on her achievement.

Oliwia is a student of our full-time undergraduate programme, DT205 Mathematical Sciences and exemplifies the accomplishments of students from that programme. Her outstanding achievement is testimony to the technical acumen she has developed combined with high-level problem-solving & analytical skills and the employability skills suitable for a career across a wide range of sectors, characteristic of our undergraduate programmes. Oliwia is interested in statistics and data analysis and intends to pursue a career in these sectors or undertake postgraduate study.

We wish Oliwia every success in the remainder of her degree programme and for the future.

20 Mar 2018: Graduates of the School presented at February Graduation

The School was delighted to present graduates of its full-time undergraduate programmes, DT205 Mathematical Sciences and DT220 Industrial Mathematics together with graduates of its postgraduate programme DT9209 MSc Applied Mathematics at the recent graduation ceremony on 24 February 2018.

The ceremony took place in the awe-inspiring surroundings of St Patricks Cathedral and graduates were accompanied by family, friends and well-wishers to mark their success and join in the celebrations. The School is proud of the achievements of all of its graduates, many of whom are either embarking upon an exciting career or have returned to study after many years, or have undertaken several part-time qualifications with us over many years, or have successfully combined study with a busy family and work life.

Well done to all our graduates and we look forward to hearing from you again in the near future.

14 Mar 2018: DIT mathematics undergraduates are part of SpaceX Hyperloop competion

Éirloop, a team including two Stage 1 undergraduate students in the School of Mathematical Sciences, Ania Oberska and Qi Hongxiang, is one of only 20 teams that have been accepted to compete in the 2018 SpaceX Hyperloop competition. Their proposal for a high-speed, self-propelled transport pod was selected from entries from across the world. The team is a collaboration between DCU, TCD, UCD, DIT, ITT, MU. We wish the team, and particularly Ania and Qi, luck in the competition this summer.
