Dublin City University was initially set up to fulfil the national requirement for a highly-trained workforce with skills in the areas of business, science and electronics, computer technology, communications and languages and as an agent for change in its local community.

A large expansion programme throughout 2015 and 2016 saw the incorporation of several colleges under the DCU umbrella, including St Patrick's College Drumcondra, Mater Dei Institute of Education and Church of Ireland College of Education.

DCU has developed its own research specialisms, creating a number of national centres of excellence that collaborate with other universities and industry internationally. These research centres have transcended traditional boundaries and have been extended to include combinations of academic disciplines such as biotechnology, electronic engineering, physics and chemistry.

It also comprises the John and Aileen O'Reilly library, with 400 workstations, 1,200 seats and 18 collaborative rooms. It bills itself as the first university library to put digital records on the same footing as books and journals, granting access to some 250,000 volumes, a number that is growing as technology improves. Its campus also includes restaurants, a theatre and conference centre, a crèche and a university sports complex.

We provide an inclusive service to support, guide and empower students to make informed career decisions to maximise your personal and professional development.
