IADT is uniquely positioned in terms of our programmes and research. We are mission-focused and hold a distinct position within the higher education sector in Ireland as an Institute of Art, Design and Technology leading in programmes for the technological and the creative and cultural industries and sectors.

Given our unique and distinctive focus, our programme offering supports the development of the creative, entrepreneurial and technical skills of our students, vital for their future careers and for Ireland’s economic regeneration and development.

Our Strategic Plan 2014-2018 sets the objective of consolidating and enhancing our position as a specialised institute working in close partnership with industry and communities and other higher education institutions (HEIs) to educate students who can shape, change and develop industry and communities, and respond to changing societal needs.
