Introduction to the Institute

1.2.1 Introduction to the School The School is located on the DIT campus at Kevin Street in Dublin and is one of the nine Schools within the College of Engineering and Built Environment. The School consists of three departments: Electronic Engineering, Communications Engineering and Computer Engineering. The School currently has a total academic staff complement of 35, inclusive of the Head of School and the Heads of Department. There are a further 10 technician support staff and two administrative staff. The School offers a variety of engineering programmes at higher certificate, ordinary degree, honours degree and taught masters level. A number of part-time programmes are also available. The School is active in research in areas such as Antennas, RF & Microwave, Pervasive Computing, DSP, Liquid Crystals, Optical Communications and VLSI. Opportunities for research at Masters, Doctoral and Post-Doctoral levels are available. 1.2.2 History of the School The School of Electronic and Communications Engineering is the oldest school of electronic engineering in Ireland, with the first programmes in wireless telegraphy inaugurated in 1911. Other programmes in Radio Communications were established prior to 1918 and were directed primarily at the requirements of Marine and Aircraft Radio Officers. In the late 1930s professional and more broadly based programmes in Electronics and Radio Engineering were established. These professional programmes prepared students for external examinations conducted by the British Institution of Radio Engineers (Brit IRE), which was re-named the Institution of Electronic and Radio Engineers IERE) and finally merged in the 1980s with
