GMIT School of Science

The School of Science and Computing is comprised of three departments:

- Department of Biopharmaceutical & Medical Science
- Department of Computer Science & Analysis
- Department of Natural Sciences

The School offers a broad range of undergraduate degree programmes. We place a strong emphasis on active investigation, giving students the opportunity to acquire research skills through practical projects. This style of learning helps in developing graduate skills and attributes that are attractive to employers.

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

We have a strong commitment to providing highly practical programmes, which importantly includes elements of real-world learning through student work 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.
