Irish uni drop out rates linked to maths

In Ireland the mathematics entry requirements for technology related degrees has been highlighted in recent newspaper articles. A report by the Irish Higher Education Authority released in recent days shows high drop out rates in technology related courses. A newspaper article highlights academics concerns that students struggle due to inadequate mathematics background and another reports that some colleges may consider raising their entry requirements for mathematics.

As in Australia these concerns are heightened by the need to boost workforce capabilities in IT and technology.
