Play as Well as Work
Social Life at CIT
The Chemical Engineering Society organises social events several times a year, these include the 1st year - 4th year social, inter-year football tournaments, quizes, etc.
There are a wide variety of sports clubs and facilities at CIT. Chemical Engineering students have represented CIT in Gaelic Football, Hurling, Athletics, Rugby and Tae Kwon Do. We are particularly proud of some of our female students who have recently won national championships for CIT in Camogie and in Ladies Football.
Chemical Engineering students have also been active in the Drama Society, the Political Society and one student even spent a summer in Belize doing social work as part of the Gaisce programme.
Participation in clubs and societies is encouraged by the Department. College is about the experience as much as it is about study. There are 51 Societies in CIT. Some of these are discipline based, like the Chemical Engineering Society, or focused on a category of student, like the International Students Society, or on particular interests like the Circus Society or Family Guy Society. For more information, see: www.citsocieties.ie.
There are 37 sports clubs, ranging from Aikido to Volleyball with lots in between. If you are joining a football club, remember there is Gaelic football as well as rugby and soccer! Facilities are excellent and CIT students have played on provincial and national teams and some have competed at international level. For more information, see: www.cit.ie/sportsandclubs.
