ITB held its annual graduation ceremony on Friday, 7th November 2014 with over 900 students receiving awards in various disciplines.
This years' event was one of the largest graduation ceremonies held by the institute. In addition to our proud graduates, the full house in our multipurpose hall included families, friends and staff who joined in to celebrate their achievements.
The ceremony was followed by a reception on campus for graduates and their family and friends.
Later in the evening our proud graduates enjoyed an evening of celebration, entertainment and fun at the favourite annual tradition of our students - Annual Graduation Ball held at the Dunboyne Castle Hotel.

 

 

Congratulating the graduates and their families, Dr. Mary Meaney, ITB President also referred to ITB's alliance with DIT and IT Tallaght and the application for designation to create a Technological University for Dublin
"I wish to offer my congratulations to all our graduates today. ITB is also planning, in an alliance with DIT and IT Tallaght, to apply for designation as Ireland's first Technological University. The concept of a Technological University is new to Ireland but common for example in Scandinavia, Germany, Australia and Canada. It is a description that fits well with the kind of institution we aim to be: innovative and entrepreneurial, closely connected with industry and community and offering educational opportunities at every level - for school leavers, for job seekers, and for those returning to study so as to enhance or change careers. By joining with our sister institutions in Dublin, we believe we can build on what we now do separately to become an important element in the economic development of the Dublin Region and a part of Ireland's economic recovery."

 

 

Awards were conferred for various programmes ranging from a Higher Certificate (Level 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications) right up to Masters levels (Level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications) in the two academic schools here in ITB.

"Basically the course covers everything to do with digital and online media. I had it as a hobby in sixth year but when I came here I learned so much more."
