A military school has been set up at the University of Dublin’s RTE campus for students who want to study military science, technology and technology engineering.
Dublin Central is the first of four campuses to have the university’s new Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) unit, which is part of the Department of Defence.
Dubai Military University will host the military academy for the next two years.
The academy, which will be led by Dr. Paul T. Murphy, a member of the DRDO and an associate professor of military science and technology at the university, will bring together students from all sectors of the military and provide them with the tools they need to become successful professionals.
“The aim is to provide students with a solid foundation in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines,” said Dr. Murphy.
Dubois Central will house the DRO, which was established in the aftermath of the 2011 Dublin Bombing, to support the development of the university and other parts of the state’s defence.
Dr. Murphy said the academy will focus on students who wish to study advanced military technology and warfare and to develop their leadership skills.
“This will provide students from different disciplines the chance to develop the skills and skillsets that will allow them to be able to perform as an active part of our armed forces,” he said.
Dubris Central will have about 10,000 students, and students will be able apply for jobs and scholarships in the organisation.
The Defence Research Development Organisation will be responsible for recruiting and training future officers, staff and volunteers in the future.
Dubrios Central will also be the home of the Dublin Defence Research Centre.
It is currently based at the National Defence College, but Dr. T.S. Murphy hopes the centre will become the hub for a new centre for research in the military.
Dubrico Central has been under the DRDO’s watch for the last seven years.
It is also one of four sites where the military has built a major new military academy, with the rest being at Ballymun, Clonmel, Louth and Clontarf.
Dr Murphy said he hoped the academy would help Dublin attract students from across the world.
“Our future is dependent on a stable economy and a thriving defence industry.
This is a vital component in that effort,” he added.
The DRDO’s military academy will be housed at the RTE College of Technology, which has a population of about 15,000.
Dr T. S. Murphy is also the Executive Director of Dublin City Council.
