Dublin Institute of Technology is a modern technological university providing professional education to doctoral level. It blends the academic excellence of a traditional university with career-focussed learning, discovery and the application of knowledge.
With a student body of over 20,000, DIT is organised into 4 Colleges: College of Business, College of Arts and Tourism, College of Engineering and Built Environment and College of Sciences and Health.
DIT is committed to developing research of intellectual and strategic importance. As part of our research strategy we focus on six high-level Research Themes: Environmental Sustainability, New Materials and Technologies, Food and Health Sciences, Information and Communications Technologies, Social, Business and Economic and Creative Arts and Media.
DIT Library Services works closely with the Research Directorate, providing a range of research specific resources and services to accommodate the needs of researchers. The Institute has embraced Open Access with an official Open Access Self-Archiving Policy in 2009 requiring researchers to make their research available where possible on Arrow, the institutional repository for DIT.
