We are the centre for research and education in the mathematical sciences at NUI Galway.
We offer the following degree programmes: B.Sc. in Mathematical Science, B.Sc in Financial Mathematics & Economics, B.A. in Mathematics & Education, B.Sc. degrees in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and/or Computer Science via the Science programme, and a B.A. degree in mathematics with another (humanities or social sciences) subject via Arts. We also run one-year course-based Masters programmes in Mathematics, in Biomedical Genomics and in Computational Genomics.
In a typical year we teach over 2,000 individual students across the University, in a supportive and inclusive learning environment. We are home to the SUMS (Support for Undergraduate Mathematics and Statistics) Centre, which provides tutorial support on an informal drop-in basis. Approximately 100 students graduate annually from NUI Galway with a primary degree in the mathematical sciences. The skills and knowledge that they have developed are highly valued by employers, and they have diverse and promising career opportunities.
We conduct high calibre research in mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and bioinformatics, publishing over 100 articles in the international research literature in a typical year. More than 20 students have completed PhD degrees in the School in the last three years.
The School is involved in many local and regional communication and outreach activities, and welcomes visits from potential future NUI Galway students through its TY Friday and mathematical enrichment programmes.
Our School is the only one on campus to have won awards in each of the three President’s Excellence Award schemes: for Teaching, Research and Support Service Excellence. You can find out more about us at the links below.
