AIT is not just a great place to study where you develop the knowledge and skills to enjoy a rewarding career, you will also make friends for life here.

AIT has relationships with almost 250 international universities and colleges

Here is what Tushar Sharma had to say about his time at AIT:

I decided to study software engineering at AIT as Ireland is famous in India as a major exporter of software engineering.  The International Office provided me with useful information about my studies while I was in India and when I came to Athlone, I was pleased that my decision to study on the Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering was the right one.  After four years of study, I have started a graduate position as a software engineer at LM Ericsson, Athlone.  My studies provided me with practical skills for the software industry but also helped me to become a team player.  I am now working with colleagues from around the world in Athlone.  Athlone is a great place for an international student to study and live. I am delighted to have found a job in Athlone and intend studying part-time at night on the Master of Science in Software Engineering at AIT while I work in Ericsson, Athlone
