President's Welcome

Taking the Next Step in Education

The alliance of Institute of Technology Blanchardstown, Dublin Institute of Technology, and Institute of Technology Tallaght is set to become the first Technological University (TU Dublin) in Ireland, as revealed by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD in July 2018.

TU Dublin will be positioned at the convergence of the arts, business, science and technology, and will strengthen the Greater Dublin Region and its prominence as a location that encourages and supports knowledge advancement, sustainable development and inclusive education.

Technological Universities are an established feature of many international educational systems in Germany, Austria, Finland, the Netherlands, Canada and New Zealand, acting as a dynamic catalyst for economic, technological, social and cultural progress.

TU Dublin will comprise a joined-up approach to the third-level experience that involves connecting students, employers, researchers and the wider academic community to facilitate economic transformation and sustainable growth. I look forward to the establishment of the pioneering TU Dublin, where our students, staff and partners will connect with academic programmes to create Ireland’s skilled graduates of tomorrow.

Our campus continues to grow, our new dedicated Student Services building will be up and running by the time you join us in 2019.

We look forward to you joining us on the Blanchardstown Campus of TU Dublin.

Dr. Diarmuid O’Callaghan,

President
