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.
