St. Patrick's College


By studying Science at Maynooth, you are joining a research tradition that can trace its roots to the first professors of the Royal College of St Patrick, founded in 1795. The Faculty of Science and Engineering at Maynooth University now comprises the Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Electronic Engineering, Experimental Physics, Mathematical Physics, Mathematics and Statistics, and Psychology.

You choose four subjects in 1st year, one of which has to be Mathematics. The other three science subjects come from a pool of seven. You can research these subjects below in the presentations.

You don’t have to decide until four weeks after commencement of 1st year. This gives you a chance to sample various subjects before you lock in your choices and make an informed decision.

Subject Talks

On Tuesday, 12th and Wednesday, 13th of September we will be hosting a series of Subject Information Talks on campus to help students with their subject choices in advance of registration. Join us (check the schedule) and ask our staff anything that’s on your mind about our Arts or Science degrees or any of our courses.  We are here to help!
