Hopes Munster Technological University will open in 2019

It’s believed the Munster Technological University will come into being in 2019.

That’s according to President of the Institute of Technology Tralee, Dr Oliver Murphy.

For those concerned the merger will lead to Kerry and Tralee being the poor relation of Cork in terms of courses and services, Dr Murphy says this won’t happen.

He says there’s an agreement set up with Cork Institute of Technology that states that critical courses, resources and services will be retained in Tralee.
