UNEVOC Centre (Uni/Research) since 2007
Deeply embedded in our region, TU Dublin has campuses in Dublin City Centre, in Blanchardstown and in Tallaght and, through our major infrastructural development plan, we are currently investing over €500 million in new, state-of-the-art, technology-enabled facilities to enhance our students’ experience.
A leader in STEM disciplines, TU Dublin also supports the largest cohorts of students of business, media, culinary arts, and the creative and performing arts. We are passionate about life-long learning and, as the largest provider of part-time education, we make an important contribution to the economic life of Ireland, enabling capacity building for the future.
Our distinguished researchers and innovators are pioneers in science and technology discovery; play active roles in informing policy and standards; and contribute to the creative life of Ireland. Our award-winning technology transfer and business incubation activity has delivered over 400 new sustainable businesses with an economic value of almost €700 million.
With an international outlook, we welcome students and staff from around the world while our strong international partnerships provide opportunities for student and staff exchange programmes, major cross collaboration research projects, and employment opportunities. We are immensely proud of our network of 100,000+ TU Dublin graduates who are making their careers here in Ireland and in 70 countries worldwide.
Our role as TU Dublin is to engage our stakeholders – our students, staff, communities, industry and governments – in solving some of the world’s most pressing issues, and being ready to take advantage of opportunities that arise. Our vision is to create a better world together.
The three pillars of our strategy are People, Planet and Partnership.
We have a culture that cares for people. TU Dublin offers space to foster ideas, relationships and individual personal development. The landscape in which we work, live and socialise is changing exponentially with the rapid pace of technological development. We are committed to creating transformational educational opportunities that inspire, support and develop the individual in reaching their full potential. By taking this approach, we are preparing people to confidently tackle the challenges that the world faces in creative and balanced ways.
TU Dublin is uniquely positioned to drive societal changes. We will be a leader and a voice for sustainability, a way of living and working in a new, more balanced way, a way that protects our planet for future generations. We will work with stakeholders to champion these issues at local, national and global level to solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.
TU Dublin is close to the pulse of a thriving society. We actively reach out and reach in to connect people, to share competencies, join ideas, create synergies and unearth new opportunities. We will actively seek to increase and deepen our partnership all over the world, on the understanding that the complex problems of today are solved together. Our approach is We Can, We Will, We Do.
