What is Higher Certificate Mathematics?

The programme is designed for those with an interest in the mathematical sciences or who require a better understanding of mathematics for their jobs and wish to improve their mathematical skills for their future career. It is a single-stage, add-on programme and provides a solid background in the fundamentals of mathematics. The programme is two years in duration and requires the successful completion of four modules, two of which are taken each year. The modules are delivered in the evenings, making the programme attractive to those in full-time employment. The programme is suitable for individuals who have already studied some mathematics at third level within another discipline. Graduates of the programme are eligible to enter the part-time ordinary degree programme in Mathematics (DT7248) or transfer to the full-time honours degree programmes in the School.


Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.

Please note that the catalogue is provided as a guide to modules in DIT. Not all modules listed will necessarily be offered every year and new modules may also be added. Information subject to change. For detail on specific programmes/modules please contact the relevant School directly.
