In March 2009 an application for EU & U.S. Atlantis funding for the development and implementation of a transatlantic dual master’s degree in Sustainability, Technology and Innovation was submitted by DIT to the Atlantis funding agency EACEA of the EU. This application was coordinated by Dr. Mike Murphy and Mr. Donal McHale of DIT, and was developed in collaboration with Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) Barcelona, Spain and Purdue University, Indiana, U.S.A. Funding was granted in August 2009 and lasts for four years, covering both transatlantic student and faculty (staff) mobility, and also some administrative costs.
This Master’s programme (DT713) is a fulltime programme consisting of one semester at each European institution and two semesters at Purdue University. General plans of study are used to design the specific plan of study for each student. Each specific plan of study is agreed upon by the academic programme committee, made up of one representative from each institution, and the individual student.
