This development will provide a state-of-the-art science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) facility at DCU.
‘Future-Tech’, the planned 10,000m² facility, is a project that will further advance DCU’s international reputation for excellence in science, computing and engineering disciplines, with a capacity to accommodate over 3,000 additional STEM students on the university’s Glasnevin campus. Future-Tech will also house DCU’s entire School of Health & Human Performance. The Government allocation of €24 million is being combined with a €26 milion investment supported by European Investment Bank loan finance and philanthropy. Located on a prime 0.75 acre site at the main entrance to DCU’s Glasnevin Campus on Collins Avenue, this signature building will take 18-24 months to build, with the first student intake earmarked for 2021.
