1 Nov 2017: Graduates of the School receive awards at ceremony in St Patrick's Cathedral

The annual October graduation ceremony for the College of Sciences & Health, Dublin Institute of Technology took place on Saturday 14 October. The School of Mathematical Sciences presented graduates of its programmes at the 9.30am ceremony in the magnificent surroundings of St Patrick's Cathedral. This October, over 30 graduates of the School's programmes received awards.

As always, the ceremony was a very happy occassion and an opportunity to share in the sucess of our graduates in the company of their friends and families. The School congratulates all its graduates on their acheivements and joins in celebrating their hard work and dedication in successfully completing their programme of study and gaining their well-deserved qualifications. Many of our graduates have completed part-time programmes, balancing study with work and family life. We hope to keep in touch with all our graduates and see many of them again for further study or postgraudate opportunities.

Graduates of the School's full-time and part-time undergraduate and postgraduate programmes celebrate receiving their awards.

1 Nov 2017: Two mathematical sciences doctorates conferred at October graduation ceremony

The Dublin Institute of Technology October graduation ceremony for the College of Sciences & Health saw two recent successful doctoral candidates conferred with their awards. Congratulations to Eilis Kelly and Paul O'Reilly who successfully defended their research thesis in 2017.

Eilis's thesis Mathematical Modelling of Random Antibody Adsorption and Immunoassay Activity was principally supervised by Dr. Dana Mackey of the School of Mathematical Sciences and, recognising the work's very applicable nature, Dr Izabela Naydenova of the School of Physics and Clinical & Optometric Sciences acted as advisory supervisor.

Paul's thesis, entitled Mathematical modelling of hybrid polymer systems, was also inter-disciplinary and supervised by Dr. Dana Mackey (principal) and Dr Izabela Naydenova(advisory).

Congratulations to both Eilis and Paul and we wish them every success in the future.

22 Sept 2017: New-student enrolments increase in the School of Mathematical Sciences

The School of Mathematical Sciences is delighted to welcome all its new students who will be starting programmes in September 2017. Its two full-time undergraduate programmes – DT205 BSc Hons Mathematical Sciences and DT220 BSc Hons Industrial Mathematics – remain immensely popular with over thirty new students enrolling this year. These new entrants will be beginning a four-year honours degree that will equip them with the flexible, analytical and problem-solving skills for a professional career in their chosen sector.

In addition, the School is very pleased to welcome an increased number of students to its part-time undergraduate programmes and part-time continuing professional development programmes. In particular, a large number of students will be embarking upon the one-year CPD programme, DT8998 CPD Diploma in Data Analysis for Professionals. This programme is in its third year and going from strength to strength, providing opportunities for students to develop core skills in statistical data analysis – i.e. how to interpret a data set and how to draw conclusions and represent results of data analysis – using a blend of theory and practise-based software skills which enhance their problem-solving and decision-making skills. In 2017/2018 many of the students on this programme will be funded via the Springboard+ scheme providing upskilling.

The School also warmly welcomes back its continuing students and wishes them an enjoyable and successful year ahead. For more information about any of these programmes visit our programme information pages.

1 Nov 2017: Mathematical Sciences graduate received College Student Excellence Award

Congratulations to Edward Donlon, a recent graduate of the School of Mathematical Sciences and DT205 BSc Hons Mathematical Sciences who recently was received a Student Excellence Award for the College of Sciences and Health, Dublin Institute of Technology. Edward graduated this October and the Student Excellence Award was presented in front of his friends and family at the graduation ceremony.

The Student Excellence Award recognises students who not only acheive outstanding academic results in their examinations but also distinguish themselves from their peers. We wish Edward every success in his future study and career and look forward to seeing him at DIT again soon.

Mathematical Sciences graduate, Edward Donlon, receives a College of Sciences & Health Student Excellence Award from the President, Prof Brian Norton.

21 Sept 2017: Laura Cooke joins the School

The School of Mathematical Sciences, DIT, is delighted to welcome Dr Laura Cooke to the School for the academic year 2017/2018.  Laura is an Assistant Lecturer with research interest in mathematical oceonography and meteorology.  We wish her every success in her new role.
