About Cork Institute of Technology / Institute of Technology, Tralee
At Cork Institute of Technology we have one of Ireland's major higher education institutions, with total enrolments (full-time and part-time) of almost 13,000 students. Our courses span five main fields: Science, Business, Engineering, Art and Music. The qualifications awarded vary from Post-graduate Doctorates, to Degrees and Higher Certificates, as well as thriving and internationally recognised trade craft courses. In addition, CIT has a varied part-time and evening programme - one of the largest in Ireland. Research and Development and services to industry are a significant part of CIT's work.
The Institute is one of the largest and longest established technological education centres in Ireland, inheriting a long and valued tradition of education dating back to the early 19th Century. There are three campuses - at Bishopstown, at the Crawford College of Art & Design, and at the Cork School of Music. An ambitious development plan is under way, transforming these campuses with investments of Euro 50 million.
