Research at GMIT is growing and evolving. We encourage new research activities driven by talented academic staff and motivated researchers, in areas of critical importance to industry and the region.
GMIT has three research centres, located at GMIT's Galway campus, Marine and Freshwater Research Centre (MFRC),Galway Medical Technology Centre (GMedTech) and Centre for the Integration of Sustainable Energy Technologies (CiSET).
GMIT Careers Service is available to all students and recent graduates of GMIT. We work with employers, academics, and professional organisations.
The Careers Service facilitates the transition from education to employment and engages in the recruitment process between students and potential employers.
Our students and the opportunities we offer them to develop their potential are at the core of our organisation. In the Institute of Technology sector in Ireland, there is a unique blending of courses in science, business, engineering, technology and humanities and it is possible to progress through higher certificate, degree and masters level awards on to PhD.
Our award system is aligned with the European Credit Transfer System and this enables our students to transfer with ease to study abroad. International students coming to GMIT can also benefit from this credit transfer arrangement. We have links with almost 100 centres of higher education throughout Europe and the US and we welcome applications from students across the world.
