Establishing the
Munster Technological University

The Institute of Technology Tralee and Cork Institute of Technology are working together towards the goal of establishing the Munster Technological University (MTU).

The creation of a new University is an exciting venture which promises many opportunities as well as a significant enhancement in the range and level of activities which can be pursued. The MTU will be an exemplar of good practice, leading and defining what it means to be a Technological University.

The mission of the MTU is to promote the use of knowledge to realise positive effects for society. This mission will be achieved through excellence in education, research and engagement as well as through an organisational culture which is focused on recognising and meeting the needs of individuals, enterprise partners and the broader society.

The MTU submission will reflect the requirements specified in the act whilst articulating the mission and vision for the MTU, the benefits regionally, nationally and internationally of the new university in addition to the cost‑benefit analysis and the business plan for the MTU.

A submission for designation of Technological University will be made to the HEA in Quarter 4 2018. The review and assessment of the expert international panel of the MTU submission is expected to be completed in Quarter 1 2019.

Both Institutes are committed to achieving Technological University status and have as their objective the registration of students into the new multi‑campus Technological University in September 2019.
