Technological University Dublin or TU Dublin is Ireland’s first technological university, established on 1 January 2019, taking over all functions and operations of the three amalgamated institutions, the Dublin Institute of Technology, Institute of Technology, Blanchardstown, and Institute of Technology, Tallaght. It is the second-largest third-level institution in Ireland based on student population of 28,500, behind University College Dublin. It is the eighth university in Ireland, and the fourth in the Dublin Region, following Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, and Dublin City University.
The institution’s history stretches back to 1887, with the establishment of the first technical education institution in Ireland, the City of Dublin Technical Schools.

We are deeply committed to collaborating with our national and international academic partners and our many networks in industry and civic society to create new learning experiences and develop impactful research.
