The Clean Technology Centre is part of Cork Institute of Technology and this has been a great asset to the centre since its inception.
Cork Institute of Technology is one of the largest 3rd level institutes in Ireland with over 12,000 students, and 1,400 staff including 824 academics. CIT offers a huge range of full time and part time courses on many different topics and from certificate to PhD levels.
CIT is the second largest provider of engineering education in the country and CTC is proud to be one of the oldest centres in the Institute and one of its main centres of outreach to business and industry. CIT is also home to the Rubicon Centre, one of the main incubation centres in Ireland and home to over 40 knowledge based start up companies.
The Centre would not have existed without the foresight of CIT to facilitate its creation and support it over the years. As part of CIT we have the bonus of access to a huge variety of resources and expertise. CTC works with different Departments and Faculties within the Institute on a regular basis.
CTC staff also lecture in the Institute in different departments on issues relating to sustainability. There are several degree and post-graduate courses in CIT relating to environmental issues and the CTC is happy to support these.
CTC was also very active in the greening of the Institute and facilitating EPA funding to achieve this goal. More…
