Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin), Ireland’s first technological university, has been formally established by law today. 

TU Dublin will become the largest Higher Education Institution in the State with almost 28,000 students and over 3,000 staff. It will be a multi-campus university with campuses in Grangegorman, Blanchardstown and Tallaght as well as a “virtual” campus.

This follows the announcement last month by the Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh T.D. and Minister for Higher Education, Mary Mitchell O’Connor T.D., that Professor David FitzPatrick is to be the first president of the new institution. Minister McHugh and Minister Mitchell O’Connor have also announced the members of the first governing body of the institution, to be chaired by Professor Tom Collins, who are Dr Caitríona Fisher, Ms Imelda Reynolds, and Mr Paddy Lavelle.
