IT Tallaght: Why I did ITT!

Find out why Rong Ji, a final year student in Electronic Engineering in ITT and our Chinese Student Ambassador, did ITT! From the college’s location to the quality of the courses on offer, there’s lots of reasons to choose IT Tallaght

Tallaght in located in South Dublin Country and is one of Ireland’s largest urban centres (after Dublin and Cork) with a population of more than 100,000 people. The Institute of Technology Tallaght (ITT) is located at the centre of the the town and has over 40 links around the world. It cooperates with Nanjing Tech University in China, the University Paris Sorbone in France, in Poland, Brazil and so on.

There are many great courses of offer and ITT is also a hub of research and innovation. The Synergy Centre at ITT is an innovation centre that provides office space and business support to early-stage businesses, and it plays a key role in Ireland’s business innovation and research environment.
