Technological Universities Status
It is a matter for the relevant Institutes of Technology in a technological university (TU) development consortium to lead on the progression of their plans to seek designation as a TU under the Technological Universities Act 2018.
In relation to the Technological University for South East Ireland (TUSEI) consortium comprising Waterford Institute of Technology and the Institute of Technology Carlow, both institutes are committed to achieving TU status.
The Department understands that the TUSEI consortium is working towards the submission of an application for TU designation under the 2018 Act later this year.
