This is a time of great potential and many challenges for CIT. The Institute has converted all of its academic programmes to a Modular structure and has also adopted a two semester academic calendar. Also the very nature of third level education in Ireland is in a period of reform and change due to national and international influences. Finally, CIT is achieving greater autonomy and is therefore charged with greater responsibility for its own development.
CIT has gone through many changes to bring it to where it is today. Through these changes it has matured into a modern third level institution offering a range of awards in a variety of disciplines.
These developments are framed by the Institute's Strategic Plan and the ongoing work of the Strategic Plan steering group. All developments are designed to help the Institute to fulfill its mission as a provider of high quality student-centred, career-focused, education opportunities for Cork, the greater Cork region and the country as a whole.
