School of Multidisciplinary Technologies Research Publications (ARROW - DIT Open Access Research Repository)

Journal of Sustainable Design & Applied Research (SDAR) published in collaboration with the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Ireland.

CREATE Contributions to Research in Engineering and Applied Technology Education


SDAR Launch

Thursday 10th December saw the launch of the 2016 Journal of Sustainable Design & Applied Research (SDAR), co-published by the Dublin Institute of Technology and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Ireland at the Greenway Hub research building in the developing DIT campus at Grangegorman.


Five new papers were uploaded providing a total of 30 scholarly papers available to all as a free access journal: Over 5,000 full paper downloads are recorded each year from over 60 countries throughout the world. In addition 2,000 copies are distributed to CIBSE members and industry in Ireland.

Editorial team: Kevin Kelly, Yvonne Desmond, Kevin Gaughan & Pat Lehane

#The intention of the journal is to offer a first publish opportunity to industry engineers and new researchers who are developing or applying sustainable systems in engineering and the built environment. A blind peer review process of evidence based applied research or post occupancy evaluations is provided free. There is no publishing fee.

Abstracts for papers for SDAR 2017 are now invited and can be submitted here.

Fantastic Win for DT066 student Anna McEvoy 


DIT student Anna McEvoy, a student of DT066 Engineering (General Entry) at Bolton Street, has been selected as a 2015 Intel Women in Technology scholar.

Sarah Sexton, Women in Technology Scholarship Program Manager at Intel said "This year we had a tremendous response to the scholarship program with an exceptionally high standard of applicants so it really is a fantastic achievement for the young women who have been selected."

Anna McEvoy, who previously studied at Our Lady’s College in Greenhills, Drogheda, was awarded both a second place award in the Plant Sciences category as well as a Monsanto Award for Innovation in Plant Science First Award for her project ‘Aetiology of bleeding canker disease of horse chestnut trees’.

Anna’s project involved research into the presence of bleeding canker on horse chestnut trees throughout Ireland and used an investigative method to identify the causal agent. As part of her awards Anna received cash prizes of US$2,500 and US$1,500. Anna was selected to attend ISEF after she was named Sentinus Young Innovator 2014.

Further information about the Intel Women in Technology scholarship program is available online.
