Trinity College Dublin is embarking 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. Recognising the importance for humanity in addressing the challenge of sustainable technological development, the expansion of the three Schools is being executed as a single strategic activity in the area of “Engineering, Environment, and Emerging Technologies”, or E3.
The E3 vision enables;
- The creation of a purpose built, multidisciplinary, foundry for the delivery of innovations in research and teaching within the Schools of Engineering, Natural Science and Computer Science and Statistics.
- A future-proofed education for new graduates who will enable society to live on this planet in a way that is sustainable and equitable.
- The underpinning of the infrastructural and staffing needs of these expanded Schools to ensure that their outputs are world leading.
- An increase in the number of STEM students within Trinity by over one third in 10 years.
With E3, Trinity promotes the Vision of a society where the interdependence between technological innovation and our natural capital is advanced by world-leading research, education and entrepreneurship.
E3 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.
