Master in Science in Statistics Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin




Course info


The School of Computer Science and Statistics has a very active Ph.D. programme, with about 200 students currently enrolled. The objective of the programme is that its Ph.D. students undertake world-class research that will have a demonstrable impact on society at large and, in so doing, to have trained the researchers and academics of the future.

For the purposes of research, the School is divided into 5 Disciplines, four of which – Computer Systems, Information Systems, Intelligent Systems and Software Systems – offer a Ph.D. in Computer Science. The Statistics Discipline offers a Ph.D. in Statistics. The typical duration of a Ph.D. is 3 to 4 years and consists of an initial 18 month phase of coursework and development of a research topic, followed by concentration on the research topic and writing of a thesis for presentation at an oral examination.


The Statistics Discipline has one of the most active research groups in this field in Ireland. The research interests of its staff and graduate students include: modern computationally intensive tools in both Bayesian and classical statistics (techniques which are driven by new applications in science and engineering), theoretical work on modern regression methods, and specialist applications of statistics in business, industry and society. Projects currently supporting research students under funding from national and international agencies include: Bayesian statistical computation using functional approximations like Laplace and variational Bayes, palaeoclimate reconstruction, source separation for multi-spectral astronomical images, estimating species diversity in marine animals, failure and reliability of complex telecommunications networks and optimal road traffic management. This course deals with the Statistics program (Master) in research.
