GMIT, LYIT and IT Sligo on course to become a TU for the west and north-west in early 2022
The Presidents of the three institutes of technology in the Connacht-Ulster Alliance (CUA) today (Thursday 28 October 2021) warmly welcome the announcement by the Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science, Simon Harris, TD, that GMIT, LYIT and IT Sligo have together been approved for designation as a Technological University (TU).
This is an historic day for the three institutes as the eight campuses of the CUA collectively take a step closer to becoming a TU in the region stretching from north Donegal to south Galway, with many of those locations set to become university towns for the first time.
The new TU will offer almost 600 academic programmes from pre-degree to doctoral level to a student population of 20,000+ students supported by over 2,200 staff.
