Technological University Dublin is an Irish university formed in 2019. The university's establishment followed the merging of three other universities in the city, namely the Dublin Institute of Technology, the Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown and the Institute of Technology, Tallaght. The oldest of these institutions has a history stretching back to 1887.
Due to the circumstances of its formation, the university is spread across three campuses across the city of Dublin. The university’s primary focus is on STEM subjects, with a wide variety of specialist science labs and equipment.
Subjects and departments on offer are spread out across both undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and include finance, accounting, architecture, various science subjects, mathematics and business among many others.
As well as these diverse academic offerings, the university also plays host to a range of recreational facilities, with dedicated sports centres on each of the university’s three campuses. The university also provides dedicated student societies and events in order to foster a spirit of co-operation and community across such a large institution.
As well as the university-provided facilities, students at Technological University of Dublin also have access to the city of Dublin itself.
As Ireland’s capital, economic centre and home to numerous other universities, Dublin has a huge amount to offer prospective students with a strong student culture and nightlife as well as a number of cultural and historical sites.
The city also stands as a major business centre for Europe, and Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Ebay, Facebook and Twitter all have a major presence there.
