It is designed to cater not only for those who wish to develop an advanced level of mathematical knowledge and practical skills relevant to problem solving in diverse, real-world contexts but also for those that simply wish to develop their understanding and appreciation of a fundamental branch of mathematics. The programme can be undertaken either full time over 3 semesters (approximately 18 months) or part time over 6 semesters (3 years) and is structured to suit both full-time students and those that are combining study with a career or family life. New entrants can start the programme either in September or January. The programme encourages students to engage in autonomous, self-directed learning whilst providing a supportive environment where lecturers and stage coordinators facilitate and mentor learning.
The programme will emphasise the use of mathematics to solve problems and will build students' mathematical knowledge and their ability to analyse problems and apply advanced mathematical techniques in a rigorous manner. Successful applicants will require a primary degree at second-class or higher classification and will be drawn from computing, engineering, mathematics, physics and other scientific and numerate backgrounds. Graduates of MSc Applied Mathematics will be flexible, highly-qualified, technical professionals with advanced analytical and problem-solving skills suitable to enter, and apply their knowledge in, a wide range of sectors and professions.
Graduates of the programme are extremely flexible and able to apply advanced mathematical techniques and mathematical problem-solving approaches to a wide variety of problems arising in careers in a diverse range of employment sectors.
In particular, graduates of this programme have enhanced technical and scientific capabilities, analytical and problem solving skills, and are well equipped for high-level careers in industry, commerce, the professions and the public sector. For example, graduates are well suited to careers in finance, information and communication technologies, data analysis, the public sector and teaching.
Applied Mathematics is a research strength of the School of Mathematical Sciences and there are also opportunities for graduates to undertake further research in the Dublin Institute Of Technology or elsewhere. The project module provides a preparation for embarking upon a PhD or MPhil by research.
