New DIT postgraduate courses provide education in key skill areas


29 July 2013: In response to ever-changing market demands, Dublin Institute of Technology has developed new postgraduate programmes in key skill areas – from digital marketing to sustainable infrastructure, from geospatial engineering to event management.

Postgraduate education is increasingly valued in the workplace and is a way to build on the expertise of a primary degree or undertake study in a different area that adds breadth of knowledge and skills to a CV.

DIT offers career-focused postgraduate education, along with a culture of excellence in teaching and research. A dynamic and interactive postgraduate community at the Institute helps to foster a sense of communal learning, whether a student is on a taught Masters or a research focused Masters.

New postgrad programmes for DIT this autumn include the MSc in Event Management (the only Masters in Event Management in the Republic) and the innovative MSc in Digital Marketing & Analytics (a 16-month programme led by practitioners from the digital marketing world).

On the engineering side, DIT is launching its MSc in Geospatial Engineering (within the new School of Surveying and Construction Management at DIT Bolton Street). The programme aims to prepare graduates to use specialised skills and deep knowledge as producers, managers and users of geospatial information.

Sustainability has become a key area in construction and engineering and the new ME in Sustainable Infrastructure is designed to provide participants with specialised skills and knowledge in technical design in this important sector.

The full list of new postgrad programmes is below. Many of DIT’s postgraduate programmes are available on both a full-time and part-time basis.
