Research - Welcome


Dublin City University will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its first intake of students on the 11th November 2010. DCU since its inception has accelerated its research drive supported by national and European funding. Today with 10,000 students including 2,600 postgraduate students, of which over 750 are postgraduate research students, DCU is a very significant agent for change within the Irish third level firmament. As a young and radical university DCU has pioneered many innovations in terms of its continually expanding teaching and research programmes.

DCU’s research is carried out through its faculties, schools and prioritised interdisciplinary research centres. Since its inception DCU has valued its relationship with business and industry. This trend permeates much of our research effort and the dynamic environment which this provides is key for innovation, commercialisation and the unique development of our young researchers.
