The course is very interesting and challenging with subjects like drawing, mechanics and site surveying. It really prepares you for work when you finish college. The lecturers in the IT are helpful and really motivate students. With the academic year split into two semesters, and continuous assessments, it really takes the pressure off at exam times.

I spent three great years in IT Tralee and graduated in 2001 with a Diploma in Agricultural Engineering. I am now working in the Agricultural machinery manufacturing section as head of production and design. The course at Tralee was perfect for the job I have now, as it provided both practical and theory based subjects. The experience of the teaching staff to help with projects and assignments was a great help to get the right type of skills from the course.The variety of clubs and societies makes it very easy to make new friends from all over the country and abroad.

I found that the ITT provided a great homely atmosphere which encouraged me to excel in my studies. The course provided me with the technical ability to enable me to continue on into further study. I gained excellent practical experience which helped me when I worked in an onsite environment. The college is equipped with a fully furnished dedicated civil engineering lab with all the latest equipment required to carry out surveying practicals as well as structures and materials experiments. Added to this there are excellent support services such as the careers office and the students union which are provided by the college in collaboration with the students. I found that the lecturers and staff were all very approachable and friendly when dealing with the students problems
