Location - Dublin

Dublin is a lively European capital city with a vibrant cultural life and a large, young, student population. The city aims to be Ireland’s global gateway, and a knowledge centre for academia and for industry. The city plays host to many international events and has been designated as European City of Science 2012. DIT is currently based on six campus sites in the city centre, each in a distinctive neighbourhood of the city and with easy access by public transport.

The Institution

Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) is one of Ireland’s largest and most innovative university-level institutions. An integral part of the Irish Higher Education system for more than a century, DIT continues to adapt and expand its provision to reflect a changing society and the wider economic environment. A comprehensive, dual-sector doctoral-awarding institution, DIT combines the academic excellence of a traditional university with professional, career-oriented learning. Graduates are capable of adapting to a changing international environment and are prepared for global citizenship and productive leadership roles. The core values reflected in its mission emphasize student-centred learning, useful knowledge, rigorous processes of discovery and critical enquiry, and support for entrepreneurship and diversity.

DIT undertakes research that is nationally relevant, internationally competitive and strategically important. It is strongly focused on problem-solving, and on social and technological development and innovation that advances human knowledge and makes a real impact on people’s life experience. Research is conducted through two research institutes – Focas, which concentrates on new materials and technologies and the Environmental Health Sciences Institute (EHSI) - and in 16 designated centres organised around strengths in food and health sciences; social, economic and business development; environmental sustainability; information and communication technologies; and creative arts and media.
