The research activity in Mathematics at NUI Galway covers a broad range of topics spanning Algebra, Analysis, Geometry and Topology. There is a particular strength in Computational Algebra, which has led to the establishment of de Brún Centre, whose mission is to support research in broad areas of algebra and its applications.
The various research groups within the discipline of Mathematics host a wide range of workshops, seminars and graduate courses, resulting in a unique and thriving graduate research programme with a strong international dimension.
As part of the doctoral training available on the Structured PhD programme, students select from a range of taught modules, including:
graduate-level courses in Mathematics covering topics such as Advanced Algebra and Analysis, Geometry, Topology/Set Theory and Computational Mathematics;
modules in Statistics, Bioinformatics and Applied Mathematics available from the cognate disciplines within the School of Maths;
a wide range of interdisciplinary modules from other schools in the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences;
modules on core skills such as research methods, computing, communications, and languages;
modules acknowledging a student's professional development, including presentation of posters and paper at an International Conference
modules to enhance a student's employability through generic training e.g. Careers' Workshops, computing skills, etc.
Each student is assigned a primary Supervisor(s) and a Graduate Research Committee made up of experienced researchers to plan their programme of study and to provide on-going support to their research.
