This programme allows prospective mature students an opportunity to demonstrate their ability in mathematics when applying for full time undergraduate science/engineering courses in CIT.
The CIT Maths for Matures Programme consists of a 22 hour elementary mathematics course, including an assessment of the work covered, and a feedback session.
AIMS OF THE MATHS FOR MATURES PROGRAMME:
- Familiarise prospective mature students with some of the mathematics that they will encounter in the first year of an engineering/science programme in CIT.
- Provide an opportunity to prospective mature students to demonstrate their ability in and aptitude for mathematics.
- Provide the Head of Department with a test result which would demonstrate if the prospective mature student has a suitable aptitude for mathematics in relation to the course(s) being applied for in CIT. The student can send the test result with their CAO application.
