UCD is one of Europe’s leading research-intensive universities where undergraduate education, postgraduate masters and PhD training, research, innovation and community engagement form a dynamic continuum of activity. The university was established in 1854 by John Henry Newman whose classic work The Idea of a University is one of the most enduring texts on the value of higher education and a source of inspiration for UCD’s current educational philosophy.

Today UCD is Ireland’s largest university with almost 25,000 students including 7,000 postgraduate students and almost 2,000 PhD students. It is home to over 5,000 international students and, in addition, places great emphasis on the internationalisation of the Irish student experience – preparing all UCD students for future employment and life that crosses borders, boundaries and cultures.

UCD Campus

UCD is located on a beautiful leafy 133-hectare campus close to Dublin’s city centre, which provides a mix of academic facilities, research institutes, libraries and archival collections, enterprise space, student villages, and sports and recreational facilities.

The School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering will host the IMC30 Conference. It is part of the UCD College of Engineering and Architecture which includes the following seven Schools:

• UCD School of Architecture
• UCD School of Biosystems Engineering
• UCD School of Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering
• UCD School of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering
• UCD School of Electrical, Electronic & Communications Engineering
