Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) is hosting an open day this week to showcase the exciting courses available at the campus. The open day takes place tomorrow 15 November, from 10am until 2pm, at the Bishopstown campus.

The event provides an ideal opportunity for prospective students, and their guardians, to sample the wide range of courses, and facilities, available. CIT currently offers over seventy CAO course options for entry in 2020. The event offers an extensive range of activities which help students in selecting higher education options.

Among the main features will be a careers exhibition and a series of information sessions, workshops, and demonstrations. The open day will also feature exhibitions of student work and laboratory visits, which will take place in the various departments across the three campuses.

Students will have an opportunity to meet with lecturers as well as current students who will recount their own personal experiences and offer advice.

CIT President, Dr Barry O’Connor, said: “Visiting CIT, students will see a vibrant, modern, campus with a full range of facilities, designed to give students the best experience possible of third level education. Staff will be on hand to outline the ever-expanding range of programmes, and programme options, available in our catalogue of profession-focused offerings from undergraduate through to postgraduate.”

Recognised as the single biggest centre of engineering education in Ireland, CIT also continues to diversify and develop. CIT offers new programmes across the key areas of business, science, music, arts/humanities, sport and well-being and the social sciences.

Modularized semesterisation allows students the possibility of customizing their studies by availing of free choice modules, across each year of their studies and appropriate work placement opportunities allied to their choice of career path. CIT has plans this year to augment the best-in-class outdoor sports facilities with new state of the art indoor facilities. For full details, see
