CIT step closer to new building

Wednesday, 6th June, 2018 3:48pm

A design team has been appointed to start the process of building a learning resource centre in CIT, it was confirmed this week.

The Cork college is one of 11 institutes of technology across the country where design teams have been appointed for the construction of new higher education buildings.

The final scope of the 11 projects have been agreed to and the necessary technical and economic appraisals have been undertaken.

The design teams of architects and engineers will now bring each project through the initial design and planning process.

The proposed CIT project is the construction of a learning resource centre which would accommodate learning, study, exhibition, engagement and entrepreneurial space.

It will allow CIT to increase its capacity across STEM, business and humanities subjects.

The Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton TD and the Minister of State for Higher Education, Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD made the announcement about the projects on Tuesday.

They said that these new facilities will help drive regional development and will be transformative for the individual institutions and the regions they serve.

Minister Bruton said: “We want to have the best education and training service in Europe by 2026. State of the art facilities in our higher education institutions is key to reaching our goal. These 11 projects across 11 Institutes of Technology will significantly boost the capacity of the sector to meet national and regional skills needs and to cater for the growing numbers of students entering the higher education system.”
