The BSc in Spatial Planning and Environmental Management (DT106), a combined programme delivered by DIT Environment & Planning, offers a huge opportunity for those interested in these increasingly relevant fields.
The DIT programme has a high calibre cohort of teachers, all of whom 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.
Examples include Ciaran Cuffe, Green Party Councillor for Dublin City Council and former Minister of State for Planning, who teaches throughout the programme. Conor Skehan lectures in Urbanism and Rural Planning, but he is also Chairperson of the Housing Agency. DIT Environment & Planning also boasts some of Ireland’s leading experts in fields such as climate change, ecology, social policy, transport and urban design.
Students get to hear from part-time staff too, who are engaged on a day-to-day basis at the coalface of planning and environmental management. Stephanie Fy, for example, is an urban designer working on the Cherrywood Planning Scheme, the largest new town development in the country. Mary Moran-Long is a leading planning and environmental law barrister but also teaches on the programme.
