The Dublin School of Architecture is unique in the Irish architectural and construction education landscape and has been providing professional architectural education since 1942 and construction skills education for over a century. The School has recently been restructured to combine the disciplines of architecture, architectural technology and construction and now offers programmes from apprenticeship to postgraduate research and PhD, combining the activities of architectural and technical design with the craft of making buildings. 
 
The School offers professionally-accredited undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in architecture and architectural technology, and a range of innovative construction related programmes in timber product technology, conservation and building maintenance. 
 
The School is also committed to providing academic leadership in the development of innovative science and technology-led building performance programmes which address the professional and CPD needs of architects, architectural technologists, construction professionals and craft workers as the building industry seeks to meet the challenge of legislative requirement for sustainable and low energy building. To this end the School has in recent years developed a suite of postgraduate programmes and CPD modules in emerging areas such energy retrofit design and technology, thermal bridge and hygrothermal assessment, and Building Information Modelling. We are also in the process of validating skills-based and construction-focused CPD modules in external wall insulation technologies, air tightness testing and IT skills for site workers.
