Points to Discuss[edit]

  • Should "university-level institution" really be copied from WIT webpage or would third-level describe the situation better? (compare: Irish universities can access IReL - from WIT there is no access)
  • A contribution of a specific number of students of one of the recent semesters rather than a rounded guess of "10.000" on the institute would be valuable information.
  • A contribution of a specific number on staff at a time instead of just "1000" would be valuable information.
  • Is it necessary to have the link to TSSG twice? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hoschimobi (talkcontribs) 20:26, 3 November 2007 (UTC)


The crest is now correct. The one that was up was several years old. The most obvious difference is the direction of the "feet" of the crest.

  • I think a citation should be required for the inclusion of John Ronan, property developer, as a former student. The John Ronan who is a former student (and current staff member at TSSG) is not the property developer (who's more normally known as Johnny Ronan anyway). --KrayZpaving (talk) 14:17, 6 January 2009 (UTC)


This line under organisation is badly written, makes no sense in relation to the section and has no attribution: 'These universities are qiute grate but people disagree with theem.'

Name[edit]

It became an IT earlier than 1998 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.100.49.116 (talkcontribs) 3 June 2007

In 1997 it adopted the present name. Djegan 23:21, 3 June 2007 (UTC)
According to WIT website it was 1998. Theripper42 13:18, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
Now referenced in the opening section, 1997 is the year. Djegan (talk) 13:25, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Draft Changes[edit]

Hey there, i sat down this morning and was jiggin around with the info on the page trying to make it fit better with the Project Uni's guidelines. I have a roughish draft of it close to completion. Will i just throw it up on the page for editing or possible deletion lol or will i post it here in the talk section first?

I say rough, its not perfect by any stretch. its missing references etc. im not sure how to find writen stuff to back up some of the stuff i have. Im a student in WIT and my dads a lecturer there, so what info i have is from him and what i picked up from other lecturers and students.

any advice? Theripper42 (talk) 13:40, 21 May 2008 (UTC)

Post a link to your sandbox, if you would. Ferdia O'Brien (T)/(C) 14:00, 21 May 2008 (UTC)
  • since there was no objections after 4 days, i have edited the page inline with my draft. If the edit is bad or.. i dunno.. not wiki enough or whatever, revert it.. but i would ask you leave me a comment telling me why. So i can learn from any mistakes.Theripper42 (talk) 16:03, 26 May 2008 (UTC)


Content[edit]

Is it really appropriate to have the organisation and research structure listed in the article? Tp4 (talk) 12:57, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
