Dublin Institute of Technology - DIT

The Dublin Institute of Technology was established as an autonomous institution under the DIT Act in 1992, but its origins go back to 1887 and the establishment of technical education in Ireland. The Institute continues to build on its long and proud tradition of providing education to the highest levels. There are 22,000 students, including over 10,000 fulltime students and 1,200 international students, 4000 graduates every year, 1,800 staff, including 900 academics. DIT awards its own higher certificates, degrees at Bachelor (Ordinary and Honours), Master of Science (MSc) and Engineering (ME) by taught modules and minor dissertation, Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) by research levels, Professional Doctorate as well the title of Professor which are recognised worldwide. There are 85 full-time and 200 part-time courses. DIT has developed alliances with HEIs, nationally and internationally, and with key stakeholders, e.g. public agencies, businesses and companies, international organisations, which support our strategic mission and add value to our educational and research priorities. DIT has embarked on a benchmarking exercise to identify peer ‘technological universities’, and have initiated discussions with the Australian Technology Network (ATN). Membership of EUA, EARMA, OECD, DEAN/HUMANE and the Magna Charta Universitatum are vital for improving performance and identifying partnerships. DIT’s strategic alliance with the Health Service Executive and Dublin City Council aims to ‘create a highly sustainable urban campus at Grangegorman with the capacity to develop strong links with other knowledge sector engines located elsewhere in the city centre’. Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) – QS, World University Rankings 2009 ranks DIT at 326 and Faculty of Engineering at 281 positions. The results of the Sunday Times analysis placed Dublin Institute of Technology at the top of the league table as the ‘Best Institute of Technology’ in Ireland. DIT also ranked very highly based on specific criteria, including best student/staff ratio (second place), and the fact that over 55% of DIT students achieve a first or a 2.1 award. DIT has research partnerships with universities and corporations around the world including Europe, Asia and the Americas. A core element to the success of the internationalisation of DIT is the allocation of resources to the establishment and maintenance of collaborative links with partner institutions worldwide. DIT is a member of the Dublin Region Higher Education Alliance (DRHEA), and the Dublin Creative Alliance. DIT views both initiatives as critical to maximising research/teaching capability.
