Please feel free to contact us also if you are seeking expertise in a particular subject - we will identify a member of the DIT staff whose speciality best matches the subject you are interested in covering.

Need an Expert? Think DIT
In the world of journalism, you never know what topic you might be covering next and therefore who might be a good person to interview for print, broadcast or online.
At DIT, we have 1,800 members of staff, many of whom lecture and research in a particular field. They’ve developed knowledge, expertise and can bring context and background analysis to a topic. So whenever you need an expert, think DIT.
With its many undergraduate degrees, postgraduate degrees, PhD programmes and part-time courses, DIT covers a huge range of subject areas.
The range of knowledge can vary from experts in sustainable infrastructure to food innovation, optometry to retail management and digital marketing to aviation technology. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to subject areas.
DIT also has a number of experts who are bilingual and available for media interviews in the Irish language including fields such as media, early childhood education, languages, culinary arts and food technology, computing, maths, family law and much, much more.
