IT, Tralee is now a founding member of the Munster Branch, Irish Computer Society (ICS)
The Institute of Technology, Tralee, is delighted to announce that it has been accepted as a founding member of the Munster Branch of the Irish Computer Society (ICS).
This is a major scoop for the Computing Department of the IT, Tralee, as this is the first occasion that the ICS has agreed to engage with a partner outside Dublin.  The ICS were particularly impressed with the unique projects initiated by the ITT to advance and promote computer literacy throughout the Kerry population.  The Institute’s positive engagement with Industry both locally, regionally and nationally also played a major role in securing the partnership. The institutes' organisation of IT related events which have received national attention was again considered excellent.
"This partnership will enable the ITT to engage with the ICS network of IT contacts on a national level.  All our college computing students will be members of the society and considering this is a European-wide professional society this will prove invaluable to our student body seeking future employment.  Students will also have access to all the ICS resources, seminars, etc. “stated Mary Lucey from the ITT.
Tom O Sullivan, Deputy CEO of the Irish Computer Society, reported that the formation of regional committees and the rollout of the Education Partner programme was passed by the Irish Computer Society in June. The ICS looks forward to now forging ahead with this exciting initiative with the Institute of technology Tralee.
