Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin) is one of the largest Universities in Ireland. It is a teaching led and research informed University that is ranked in the top 4% on universities globally. TU Dublin is located in Dublin, Ireland. Dublin is one of the world’s major hubs for the Pharmaceutical and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industries, with nine of the top ten companies in each sector calling Ireland their European home. Ireland is also a leading contributor to the global food and drink industry, as well as the medical devices industry. As such, Ireland has a huge demand for highly skilled STEM graduates.
TU Dublin is committed to graduating students with the knowledge, skills and competences required for Irish society and its economy. As part of this remit, TU Dublin is committed to supporting the widening and diversification of participation in Higher Education, and does so by actively engaging with under-represented groups including students with disabilities, students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds and mature students. TU Dublin engages with potential applicants for its STEM discipline programmes through a variety of tailored events, include open days, Science festivals and a Computing Academy programme.
TU Dublin has taken steps to increase the involvement of women in technical disciplines, including through the organisation of women-specific recruitment and engagement events. TU Dublin is an active participant in the Athena Swan initiative which was established to encourage and recognise commitment to advancing the careers of women in STEM employment in higher education and research.
