CIT, in conjunction with Enterprise Ireland has recently set up a Medical Engineering Design and Innovation Centre (MEDIC). The centre aims to bring clinicians, academics, manufacturers and entrepreneurs together to develop novel biomedical devices. Building a strong research base in biomedical devices enhances the undergraduate learning experience and provides further Masters and PhD opportunities for graduates.
The Irish Medical Device Association (IMDA) aims to promote and support an environment that encourages the sustainable development and profitable growth of multinational and indigenous medical device and diagnostic companies.

The Centre for Advanced Manufacturing & Management Systems (CAMMS) is attached to the Manufacturing, Biomedical, & Facilities Engineering department and Mechanical Engineering department in CIT. The centre uses the design, build, test and validate expertise of these departments in solving problems for industry and in delivering up to date training and education. Certifications available include City and Guilds, American Society for Quality, Society of Manufacturing Engineers. The Centre is an Associate Member of the International Institution for Production Engineering Research (CIRP) and a recognised Training Provider for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to Engineers Ireland.
