Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) has been an integral part of the Irish Higher Education system for more than a century. In that time it has continued to adapt and expand its provision to reflect a changing society and the wider economic environment. DIT is now one of Ireland’s largest and most innovative university-level institutions.

A comprehensive, dual-sector doctoral-awarding institution, DIT combines the academic excellence of a traditional university with professional, career-oriented learning, preparing graduates for productive leadership roles. The core values reflected in its mission emphasize student-centred learning, useful knowledge, rigorous processes of discovery and critical enquiry, and support for entrepreneurship and diversity.

The Grangegorman Science Park is envisioned as a major hub of intellectual capital on campus and a place where knowledge is created and transferred to enterprise, and where the latest developments in education, research and scholarly activity take place. It will be a place of true networking and collaboration between professionals and students in academia and leaders in science research, business and industry. The Science and Industry Centre shares space at one of the most prominent locations of the site. 

The Broadstone Gate is a major linkage between the Grangegorman Quarter and the city and the design and construction of the buildings at this gateway will become one of the new identities for the Dublin Institute of Technology.

In addition to the practicality of the location due to its proximity to the proposed LUAS light rail line, taxis and bus routes on Constitution Hill and the location of underground parking, the Science and Industry Centre is located to act as a figurative  bridge between academic culture and the business of the  city.
