The creation of South East Technological University, our new University in the south east of Ireland, has the potential to be the single-most transformative initiative in the region in several generations.

Welcome from the President

Welcome from the President

South East Technological University (SETU) was established on 1 May 2022 and is Ireland’s newest technological university. I was delighted to be appointed as SETU’s inaugural President in July 2022. We are a community of 18,000 students and over 1,600 staff with campuses in Carlow, Waterford and Wexford, as well as a presence in Kilkenny and Wicklow. 

Our ambition is to be a leading European Technological University and to be the anchor institution of the south east of Ireland, creating impact for the region through supporting social mobility, providing a skilled workforce, engaging in research, supporting innovation, and attracting and retaining talent.

SETU’s courses span apprenticeships to PhDs and we offer a dynamic learning experience with over 140 courses that incorporate work-based learning, student mobility, study abroad opportunities and research-led curricula. Although rooted in our region, we have many global links including membership of the European Universities Initiative, EU CONEXUS.

Our people are our greatest asset – our staff, students and partners. Working together, we will develop our new university and position it for success.

I welcome you to engage with us in SETU.

Prof Veronica Campbell
