About TU Dublin Environment & Planning

Environment and Planning at TU Dublin is the largest and longest-established centre for Planning and Environmental Management education on the island of Ireland. 

At Environment & Planning we maintain a tradition of delivering a career-focussed and reflective education that is practically and technically suited to contemporary demands within the fields of planning and environmental management.   

Environment and Planning forms part of the School of Transport Engineering, Environment & Planning.  We are located in the heart of Dublin City, on the TU Dublin – Bolton Street Campus. This is the mid-way point between the main TU Dublin Grangegorman Campus and Dublin city centre, both less than 10 minutes walking distance. 

We prepare graduates to be career ready and enabled with the knowledge and skills to make a positive impact on our environment, society and economy.   We are committed to promoting sustainable development within all our disciplines and educational activity.  Our approach is to take a multi-disciplinary perspective, within an engaged learning environment.

Our undergraduate combined programme – the BSc in Spatial Planning and Environmental Management - is a professionally accredited programme in planning and environmental management, leading to a specialised, internationally recognised degree. It is the only Level 8 honours degree programme in these disciplines in Ireland, providing students the opportunity to establish a career within these important fields.

Our suite of postgraduate programmes provides specialised educational paths for advanced, professional career development.  We have developed programmes in critical disciplinary areas such as local development, sustainable development, spatial planning, transport and urban regeneration.

We pursue research across our discipline areas and aim to engage closely with industry, government and civic society in order to promote and develop best practice and sustainable outcomes in all aspects of planning and environmental management.

Internationally, we hold education partnerships with the National University of Lesotho and Gengdan Institute of Beijing University of Technology. 

All our staff are professionally engaged at the highest disciplinary levels in Ireland and are fully committed to delivering a Teaching & Learning environment of the highest academic quality for all our students at undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Our commitment is to delivering quality educational services and pursing academic excellence across the increasingly relevant fields of environment and planning.
