South East Technological University (SETU) will host an annual spring open day, showcasing its undergraduate, postgraduate, and part-time courses on offer at its “growing and state-of-the-art” Carlow campus, later this month.
The open day at its Kilkenny Road Campus in Carlow on Saturday, May 13th, from 10 am to 2 pm coincides with the celebration of its first anniversary as a technological university.
It will highlight a range of brand-new courses for 2023/24, developed by its host of experts in academia and industry in the areas of agricultural science, set design, and sports management.
With the CAO change of mind facility now open, it is a key time for prospective students to visit SETU’s campus in Carlow and speak with lecturers, course leaders, and student support staff.
They can guide you on detailed course content, work placements, internships, and career opportunities, as well as answer your questions on areas of student life such as accommodation, admissions, and sport.
New ag courses
This year, SETU will launch nine new degree courses available to study at levels 7 and 8.
This includes the Bachelor of Science in Organic Agriculture, which a spokesperson has described as “a cutting-edge new course that is the only one of its kind offered in Ireland and will be delivered at SETU’s Wexford campus”.
“It is an excellent opportunity for those with an interest in the agri-food industry and complements the university’s existing suite of speciality land and food science programmes,” the spokesperson added.
Alongside this, the Bachelor of Engineering in Agricultural Systems Engineering launches in September 2023 for delivery at SETU’s Carlow campus.
It is another of its “expert-led” courses in the areas of agribusiness and agricultural engineering that supports the agri-food sector as one of Ireland’s most important indigenous sectors.
