Trinity College Dublin
Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin is a leading European research university, and Ireland's highest ranked, with a global reputation for excellence in teaching, research and innovation.

Trinity has embarked on an ambitious project to expand education and research activities across three of its Schools; The Schools of Engineering, Natural Sciences, and Computer Science & Statistics. This expansion is being executed as a single strategic activity in the area of "Engineering, Environment, and Emerging Technologies", or E3.

The E3 initiative will position Ireland at the forefront of fields of research in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (the STEM disciplines), that are crucial for future economic competitiveness. It will educate engineers and scientists for employment in existing and new technology sectors, equip them with the skills and attributes to lead in the creation of new businesses, and place Ireland in a leadership role globally for the quality of graduates in the STEM disciplines. Importantly, as Professor Sylvia Draper, the Dean of Engineering Mathematics and Science explains the E3 programmes will also "imbibe students with the skills they need to tackle the global challenges of today and tomorrow and to bring world-changing discoveries within their reach".

In 2020 two new undergraduate degree programmes were developed to support E3's expansion: Bachelor of Environmental Science and Engineering and the Bachelor of Computer Science and Geography. September 2021 will see the first intake of students onto these programmes.

At the forefront of this expansion is the new Martin Naughton E3 Learning Foundry, a state-of-the-art 7,256 square metre new learning facility which is in construction on the main Trinity campus, which will deliver new teaching facilities and an innovative interactive learning space for undergraduate and postgraduate students. With our leading research professors and staff, graduates will become co-creators of their futures and that of generations to come. Together they will seek out 'balanced solutions for a better world' and enable society to live on this planet in a more sustainable and equitable way.
