A Golden Era for CIT Engineering
Published on: Saturday, 16 November 2013
Tremendous work has been undertaken over many years by the staff in CIT Engineering. They have worked tirelessly to create new opportunities for the students and the Institute. They have undertaken a combination of bottom-up and top-down initiatives that have produced results which, at this stage, occur so frequently that there is a risk that this level of success may be taken for granted.
CIT’s excellent reputation in the field of engineering and in related fields is indisputable. Without doubt, this is a golden era for CIT Engineering.
