Institute of Technology Tralee (IT Tralee)

IT Tralee is a university level institution with a range of programmes from craft to postgraduate level. Established in 1977, the Institute has operated autonomously since 1993. It provides education and training, facilitates industrial research and consultancy, and is a major engine of economic and social development in the region.

The prioritised research themes build upon the Institute’s established and emerging strengths and directly align with national research priority areas and the Innovation Union flagship initiatives of the Europe 2020 strategy for a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy. Embedded at the heart of the Institute is the UNESCO Chair Research Centre which brings together a multi-disciplinary international team of world leaders in PE, Sport, Fitness and Recreation.
