FACULTY OF TOURISM AND FOOD
The Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) origins go back to 1887 but it was established as an autonomous institution under the DIT act of 1992. This brought together the 6 Colleges of Higher Education, College of Catering Cathal Brugha Street, College of Technology Kevin Street, College of Music Chatham Street, College of Commerce Rathmines, College of Marketing and Design Mountjoy Square, and College of Technology Bolton Street.
The Faculty of Tourism and Food has been in existence for over half a century having spent its earlier years as the College of Catering. The Faculty has established a national and international reputation for the excellence of its courses, research and services to the industry.
It currently provides a comprehensive range of courses from Certificate through to Masters level and provides opportunities and facilities for postgraduate research leading to PhD and MPhil degrees.
The DIT is moving to a single campus at Grangegorman and the Faculty of Tourism and Food will be located there.
Faculty of Tourism and Food Programmes include:
Culinary Arts and Food Technology
Food science and Environmental Health
Dr Dominic Dillane, Head of School, School of Hospitality Management & Tourism, represents the DIT on the ITIC Council.
