Course content

The Dublin Project is an initiative by Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Dublin City Council (DCC) and Design TwentyFirst Century (D21C) to make a positive change in the City of Dublin by bringing their resources and expertise together to solve challenging problems facing Dublin City. The project will prototype new models for solving important issues challenging 21st century cities.

The project centres on a one-year, three-semester Masters programme. The Dublin Project Masters programme will run for a four-year cycle focussing on different issues each year. In the founding year the Dublin Project partners will join with the Institute without Boundaries (IwB) from Toronto, Canada and produce a shared project with joint outcomes.

Central to the Dublin Project is collaboration. Collaboration between local authority, educational and private institutions is at the heart of the project and the students will be mixing and sharing knowledge and experience with highly experienced professionals in a range of disciplines. The students will also be collaborating together as the project is based on group work.
