20 May 2018: Mathematical Nueroscience at the Pint of Science Festival

Dr John Butler, a lecturer in the School of Mathematical Sciences, recently gave an overview of his work on movement disorders and computational neuroscience during the recent Pint of Science Festival, 14 – 16 May. John has many research interests including nueroscience and his work was well suited to the session entitled The Brain: using it, abusing it and harnessing it. The event on 14 May was sold out and was a great success.

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.
