Tourism and Culinary Arts students to enjoy state of the art facilities at IT Tallaght
Students on degree programmes in both International Hospitality and Tourism Management and Culinary Arts at IT Tallaght will soon be getting the benefit of a new “state of the art” teaching facility as they become part of Ireland’s first new Technological University for Dublin. Plans are well underway to enhance the current campus facilities for tourism and culinary arts education.
In addition to existing practical laboratories, the new building due to complete in 2021, will see the opening of a new College Training Restaurant, an Accommodation/Front Office Lab, Production and Class Kitchens, an Applied Culinary Science Lab, a Wine and Beverage Lab and a number of dedicated IT resource rooms.
These new facilities will allow the tourism and culinary arts lecturing team to expand their already successful honours degree programmes in International Hospitality and Tourism Management and in Culinary Arts /Botanical Cuisine.
Head of the School of Business and Humanities, Dr. Damien Roche, says that ‘these new state of the art facilities will allow the college to build on existing success in the tourism and culinary arts area and will allow future graduates to benefit from the many international opportunities emerging from a thriving international tourism and culinary sector.
