School of Science

A broad range of courses in life & physical sciences, and mathematics & computing with a strong emphasis on practical skills

GMIT School of Science

The School of Science comprises two departments, Life & Physical Sciences and Mathematics & Computing.

We offer a broad range of undergraduate programmes, mostly at Level 7 and Level 8.  We place a strong emphasis on active investigation, developing graduate skills and attributes that are attractive to employers, and giving students the opportunity to acquire research skills through practical projects.

Science - what's in it for you?
What do we expect of you?
What do you expect of us?

We have a strong tradition of providing highly practical programmes, and increasingly we include elements of real-world or authentic learning through student placement and projects sponsored by industry and business.

Our focus is your professional and personal development.  We want to give you the best opportunity to use your degree as a launchpad, whatever path you choose after you leave us.  More than that, we hope that you have confidence in your ability to pursue your ambition.

With this in mind, we have developed the LIFE programme in which we seek to blend all the ingredients together to ensure that you will be a successful student and graduate of GMIT.
