About Carlow Institute of Technology:
Irelands first honours degree programme in Brewing and Distilling at Irelands fastest growing Institute of Technology in Carlow. The four year bachelor of science (honours) in Brewing and Distilling is the first of its kind on the island of Ireland and has been designed to support the brewing and distilling industry, a key national growth sector and one which is undergoing a major renaissance. The programme is the result of two years of research and development by the institute and included significant consultation with industry, representative organisations, national bodies and government agencies. The institute of Technology in Carlow is ideally positioned - strategically, economically and geographically - as a centre for teaching, learning, research and innovation and the new degree programme is already attracting both national and international learners. Alongside the degree programme we have developed a suite of professional development programmes for employees in areas such as yeast biology, malting and brewing raw materials, the brewing process, distillation and distilled spirits production and post distillation downstream processing.
