The aims of the Maynooth University Certificate in Science are:

-To provide students with an opportunity to study, at Foundation Level, specific subjects that will assist them in preparing for undergraduate degree programmes in those areas identified as having key skills shortages in Ireland such as Computer Science, Technology, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Engineering;

-To reintroduce adults to study and learning and to give them the background they will need to embark on a course for a degree in science or engineering;

To provide an access route for students who wish to take science or engineering when their secondary education did not offer the necessary subjects.
