Tallaght IT has its very own LGBT society, Tallaght IT LGBT, which can be contacted by emailing the email address above.
The Institute is currently celebrating 20 years of service to the region. It was opened in 1992 as a European Demonstration College for Technological Education. In that time the Institute has expanded from an initial cohort of seven hundred students to a current complement, full and part-time, of almost four thousand undergraduates and over 60 postgraduates. It has been an exciting period in which we have witnessed the revolution in ICT impact education to make institutions like ours innovative adopters of technology for teaching and student support.
The last twelve months have seen quite a few developments in the Institute. The business incubation centre ‘Synergy’ continues to attract people with a wide range of ideas to start or expand their own businesses. Any of you who feel that you are budding entrepreneurs should contact the Centre Manager Tom Rooney who has a range of supports in place for small businesses.
We continue to pursue Technological University status with our partner institutes DIT and ITB as we believe we can offer via this development an increased number of high quality educational pathways for our students.
In all the Institute is a thriving, exciting place to learn and work and it continues to grow from strength to strength. Tá súil agam go mbainfidh tú spraoi agus tairbhe as an mbliain romhat anseo san Institiúid Teicneolaíochta, Tamhlacht.
