Research in MTU

Research is a core dimension of MTU activity. In collaboration with a wide range of organisations including Higher Education Institutions, Industry, State and Voluntary Bodies, MTU is involved in research that contributes to supporting:

  • - Regional and National Industry.
  • - The National and EU knowledge economy and Innovation Base.
  • - Enhanced quality of life within Irish society.
  • - Quality research postgraduate education at Masters and PhD level.
  • - Quality undergraduate and taught postgraduate teaching and learning.

The main Institute research activity is primarily (though not exclusively) organised around three Strategic Research Clusters that reflect the MTU current dominant strategic research strengths and critical mass.

There are also new and emerging areas of research and a number of long established centres that engage in research and consultancy.

Across university faculties, academic staff research interests range across Engineering, Science, Business and Humanities, Music and Art.
