The UCD School of Mathematical Sciences is the top ranked University Department in Ireland for both Statistics and Mathematics according to the 2014 QS University rankings. The excellence of our School is underlined by the fact that the School is ranked in the top 200 of all Universities in the world for Statistics. We offer the greatest choice of programmes in Ireland at undergraduate, masters and PhD level across three subject areas: Applied & Computational Mathematics, Mathematics and Statistics & Actuarial Sciences. Recently we have introduced new online programmes in Data Analytics. Graduates from our School have left us to join the world's leading universities including Oxford, Cornell, Caltech, Harvard or to work in a range of highly recognised companies including O2, Google, Paddy Powers, EBay, Deloitte, AXA and Zurich.

Researchers in the UCD School of Mathematical Sciences, in collaboration with Met Éireann, have created a new wind and wave atlas for Ireland for the period 2000-2012. The study was supported by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) through the Renewable Energy Research Development & Demonstration Programme.
The latest installment in the UCD Teaching and Learning Inspired Learning series features the Maths Support Centre. The Maths Support Centre offers support in mathematics to students in all programmes in UCD, not just those studying mathematics. All levels of students are catered for, from first year through to PhD, by this drop-in service. It plays a key role in supporting students in making the transition to university.
