  1. 1. <a href=" action=view&current=Paul20Hannigan_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><br></br> Letterkenny Institute of Technology (LYIT) is at third level institution located in Co Donegal. A unique Institute, LYIT has campuses located in Letterkenny and Killybegs. With approximately 250 academic staff and 3,000 students LYIT has fostered a relaxed and inclusive atmosphere for all those who attend. <br></br> The Institute offers a wide variety of programmes accross a range of disciplines including: engineering, science, computing, nursing, health and social studies, design, business, tourism, law and humanities. These include awards from higher certificates right up to PhDs. <br></br> But there's more to LYIT than meets the eye. With excellent sports facilities, clubs and societies, vibrant student life, exciting intervarsity competitions, student politics and much, much more, you’ll never want to leave. Join our Facebook page and keep up to date on what's going on at LYIT!<br></br> <br></br> <b>About Me</b><br></br> My name is Paul Hannigan, President of Letterkenny Institute of Technology. I was first appointed to this role in January 1998 for a ten year term and was successfully re- appointed for a further ten year term in January 2008.<br></br> During my time with LYIT both myself and the Institute have experienced tremendous change. We rode the wave of the “Celtic Tiger” as the benefits of capital investment resulted in a modern state of the art campus in Letterkenny. Student numbers have grown substantially to 3,000 full-time students with no sign of that abating. In 2007, the School of Tourism in Killybegs became a fourth academic school of LYIT and gave the Institute a presence in the South West of the county.<br></br> As someone who was born in Ballyshannon, Co Donegal, I get immense pride from my job on a daily basis. It has been tremendous to see the educational profile of school leavers in the North West improve dramatically with people’s ambitions and aspirations being raised simultaneously. As well as an academic institution, LYIT is a significant employer, contributing over €100m annually to the local economy.<br></br> This page is about developing closer links with those who wish to find out more about us. As President I am committed to the continuous development and expansion of LYIT even in these tough times. Now more than ever the contribution we at LYIT can make to our community will be increasingly valued. We are up for the challenge and we look forward to a brighter future.<br></br>
