Dublin City University is a young university, situated on an 85 acre campus three miles north of the River Liffey in the city centre and just a 15-minute drive from Dublin airport. With the city just a 10-minute bus drive away, students of DCU have the best of both worlds; the social and cultural benefits of city life, but with the security and vibrancy of a university campus built very much for today. DCU has developed its own research specialisms and has created a number of national centres of excellence that have transcended traditional boundaries. They now include combinations of academic disciplines such as biotechnology, electronic engineering, physics and chemistry. The design of the campus and the bright modern architecture make DCU a vibrant and attractive place to study. DCU offers over 60 undergraduate programmes, 70 postgraduate programmes, as well as the opportunity to carry out postgraduate study through research. Postgraduate research supervision is provided on a broad range of subject areas across all disciplines, including technology, engineering, business, communications, humanities, science and health.
