The primary aim of our Mathematical Modelling and Machine Learning programme at University College Cork is to provide you with training in the use and development of modern numerical methods and machine-learning software. 


With Mathematical Modelling and Machine Learning programme at University College Cork you will develop and apply new skills to real-world problems using mathematical ideas and techniques together with software tailored for complex networks and self-learning systems. While there is a strong focus on modern applications, our graduates will gain in-demand skills in mathematical modelling, problem-solving, scientific computing, dynamic machine learning, complex networks and communication of mathematical ideas to a non-technical audience.

We also teach general hands-on skills such as mathematical typesetting, mathematical writing, desktop and web-based mathematical software development, and the use of computer languages and packages such as C#, R, Python and TensorFlow – all of which are highly prized by employers in this field.


Graduates with quantitative skills and expertise in self-learning algorithms are in high demand in the industry. Demand for these skills is projected to rise over the coming years not just in Ireland but in the EU and globally. Graduates from a similar MSc have secured jobs in the following areas: banking, financial trading, consultancy, online gambling firms, software development, logistics, data analysis, and with companies such as AIB, McAfee, Fexco, DeCare Systems, MpStor, the Tyndall Institute,, First Derivatives, and KPMG.
