Dublin City University (DCU) is a university situated between Glasnevin and Whitehall on the Northside of Dublin in Ireland. Created as the National Institute for Higher Education, Dublin in 1975, it enrolled its first students in 1980 and was elevated to university status in 1989 by statute. The university currently has around 6,000 undergraduate students. There are over 600 research postgraduates and over 1,800 taught postgraduate students currently studying at the university.

In 1975 the institution was created, on a ad-hoc basis, and on June 18 that year Dr Danny O'Hare was made acting director of the institution and a day later the first governing body met. It was intended at this stage that the institution become the unified structure under which the colleges of what later became Dublin Institute of Technology would unite, but by 1978 it became apparent that this would not be the case and instead an independent institution developed.

In 1979 the institution was located on an 85 acre (344,000 m²) site 3 miles (5 km) from the city centre, just north of Albert College Park; the Albert College Building is the only significant remaining building from before this period. The Henry Grattan building was the first new building completed in 1981 along with the adjoining restaurant, many buildings have been added since forming a modern university campus.

The total area of the main campus is approximately 50 acres (202,000 m²) and is bordered by Collins Avenue, Albert College Park, Ballymun Road, Hillside Farm and St. Aidan's School. There are another 35 acres (142,000 m²) at St. Clare's Sports Grounds on the west side of Ballymun Road. This part of the campus also includes the Sports Pavilion. A further 10 acres (40,000 m²) (including Elmhurst House) situated along Griffith Avenue have been acquired recently. Entrances to the main campus are from Ballymun Road, to the west, and Collins Avenue, to the north.


The early focus of the institution was, in particular, on science and technology although it has also had a large business school. It has recently developed a presence also in the performing arts and in the humanities. The university is also famous for its work placement or INTRA [24] (INtegrated TRAining) programme, the first such programme in Ireland.


There was a plan in 2002 to base the headquarters of the Irish Academy for the Performing Arts [25] in DCU, this plan was later scrapped.


Computer Applications and Electronic Engineering were the first two degrees courses offered by the college in 1980. The Computer Applications course in DCU is more in demand than any other computer degree in Ireland and is the most highly regarded computer degree in the country, it has three times more first preferences through the Central Applications Office system than the next most sought after computer course in Ireland, Computer Science in Trinity College, Dublin. With 300 places per year, it also has the largest student intake of any computer science degree in Ireland (compared to 64 places per year in the computer science degree in TCD or 50 places per year in the computer science degree in UCD). The Central Applications Office (CAO) is the organisation responsible for overseeing most undergraduate applications in the Republic of Ireland, the Postgraduate Applications Centre is a related organisation that oversees some taught postgraduate courses. ...

Note: Dublin City University uses the term "computer applications" in a way some consider to be very liberal. Computer Applications is normally a subset of computer science, but the subjects covered in the Computer Applications course DCU effectively make it a computer science course with a more practical, workplace-ready slant including an INTRA placement. DCU can afford to include the practical side of computer science because its courses are semesterized effectively allowing the college to cram more subject modules into a smaller time period.

Strategy

In 2001 DCU adopted what was described as a highly innovative strategic plan, 'Leading Change'. For a university strategy, it was a very short document, but it set out a number of major developments and innovations. Chief amongst these was the adoption of academic strategic 'Themes', which were to govern the development of the university. Each Theme was to have a 'Theme Leader'. The academic Themes are interdisciplinary, and focus on areas in which DCU has growing leadership. This strategic framework was extended in the 2005 strategic plan, 'Leadership through Foresight', in which DCU also committed itself to eight key clusters of actions to develop its leading role in its chosen priority areas.


Collaboration and academic associations

Under its strategic plan, 'Leadership through Foresight' (2005), DCU is committed to collaboration with national and international organisations and universities on technology and research projects. It has a strong record of strategic collaboration, and most of its major research projects are built on partnerships with other universities and colleges, and also with major international companies.

Dublin City University - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3171 words)
Dublin City University (DCU) is a university situated in Glasnevin on the Northside of Dublin in Ireland.
DCU allows students to "de-register" and switch courses, this causes an artificially high non-completion rate (among the highest for the university sector), as the movement of these students (mainly first year undergraduates) into other courses within the university is not taken into account by university league tables.
The university is headed, titularly, by the Chancellor, until her recent death the Hon Ms Justice Mella Carroll, the President, currently Professor Ferdinand von Prondzynski, is the "chief officer" of the university, comparable to that of a chief executive officer.
