The Munster Technological University has been formally established today.

MTU has six campuses across the South-West region in Cork and Kerry and student body of 18,000.

The University is the consortium of Cork Institute of Technology and the Institute of Technology Tralee.

President of Munster Technological University, Professor Maggie Cusack said of the opening:

“ This is an auspicious day for the region with the formation of Munster Technological University that will benefit students, staff, and stakeholders for generations to come."

"The positive regional benefits will be paralleled with global impact from our research and innovation as we maximise the opportunities afforded MTU by the Irish Research Council and through Horizon Europe and the Green Deal.”

For Cork, it will be the first university to be established since UCC in 1845. MTU is the first university to be established in Kerry.
