Industrial Mathematics is a branch of mathematics that is concerned with developing mathematical methods and applying them to engineering, science, society, and industry.

This programme has been carefully structured to offer the training, transferable skills and knowledge that employers in the commercial, financial, industrial and public sectors seek in graduates. A particular focus of the programme is the analysis and solution of real-world mathematical problems.

It is designed to equip graduates with the skills and knowledge required to apply mathematical modelling and an analytical approach to real-world problems in industry.

Years 1 and 2 give a broad basis of subjects in applied and pure mathematics, statistics, and operational research. Introducing mathematical modelling and relevant topics in computing are also important features of years 1 and 2. Years 3 and 4 consist of advanced modules in mathematical modelling, financial mathematics, operations research and mathematical statistics. Many of these modules integrate industry relevant software.

Throughout the programme, there is an emphasis on laboratory-based work and problem-based learning via mathematical modelling, computer programming, computer applications, case studies and problem-solving, and the development of professional skills (e.g. communication skills, effective team-work strategies and project management). The programme includes a six-month work placement during year 3 enabling students to experience a working environment and gain experience of using their analytical, problem solving and computer skills.

Graduates will have developed a capacity for independent study and be in a good position to progress to postgraduate study and research. In particular, graduates who reach the appropriate honours standard will be eligible to undertake masters degrees or research degrees in the School of Mathematical Sciences, in TU Dublin or elsewhere in Higher Education."

Study Abroad Opportunities
There is an option in some semesters of the programme to study in other european institutions via Erasmus.

Graduates of this programme may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide.

My work placement as part of the industrial Mathematics programme helped me secure a job in an exciting field once I graduated.... technical and problem solvingn skills I developed during my time in the Industrial Mathematics programme help me solve real world business problems on a daily basis. I found the lecturers to be very approachable, friendly and helpful
