To provide better learning opportunities, a multi-campus university was established in Ireland by bringing together three legacy institutions, Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT), Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) and IT Sligo under the Atlantic Technological University . This merger will provide greater learning opportunities for Indian students in a number of key areas such as academic strength, global opportunities, as well as research and innovation.
The Atlantic Technological University (ATU) will enroll over 21,000 students and offer over 600 higher education courses across 8 campuses, research centers and iHubs located across the West and North West of Ireland. In addition to a world-class education, ATU will also offer Indian students the opportunity to contribute significantly to the cultural and academic framework of the university.
Enthusiastic that more Indian students are expected on campus after the merger, Jill Murphy of ATU Donegal’s International Office said, “We have really enjoyed getting to know our Indian students over the past few years when they have joins our campuses. They shared their love of their culture with us, and we celebrated Diwali & Holi and other big campus events with them. You never know if there is going to be an Indian dance party or a ceili when you walk through the door. The ATU Indian Society is an active and welcoming society which has brought Indian culture to the North West of Ireland.
ATU has a very vibrant, integrated and engaged Indian student body, both on campuses and within local communities. Current students are excited to graduate from one of Ireland’s top technology universities and believe it will improve their marketability in the job market. Explaining how the merger will create an impact, Barry O’Driscoll, Regional Director – India and South Asia, Education Ireland, said: “The ATU training represents an exciting new option in a world-class education for students in Ireland and internationally.
According to current students, this move will boost talent growth and provide dynamic career development opportunities for Indian students by solidifying and strengthening economic and academic partnerships with local and global technology sectors. Ireland is the world’s second largest exporter of computer and information technology services. Nine of the world’s top 10 software companies have a strong presence in Ireland. Global leaders such as Intel, HP, IBM, Microsoft and Apply have long-established operations in Ireland, as well as new tech giants such as Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Amazon, PayPal, eBay and Twitter. As a result, the majority of Indian ATU students study STEM-related programs, and Indian graduates from these programs obtain high-level professional employment upon graduation, many of them in Ireland using the Stay option Back (1G) or by obtaining a work permit with the support of their new employer. Mr O’Driscoll added: “Industry-ready courses at technology universities like ATU will ensure that graduates, both undergraduate and postgraduate, are well placed to take advantage of career opportunities in Ireland and in the world, and can pass smoothly into the workplace. ”
ATU offers unique and internationally relevant new courses, demonstrating industry readiness and innovation in areas ranging from modern digital accounting to international medical technologies. The programs also have integrated workplace placement opportunities as a key USP since it has been the decision-making factor for Indians.
