A new €22m Construction Education Centre is to be built in Dublin’s Broombridge, Cabra. The Centre will be administered by TU Dublin and supported by private founding partners, with Autodesk being the leading associate.
The objective of the centre is to provide a pipeline of graduates who will lead the digital transformation of the construction industry, as it focuses on catching up with other industries in terms of automation and technology adoption.
The Centre is a natural progression for TU Dublin, having provided skilled staff to the construction industry over the last 40 odd years. It has already made steps towards digitalisation, providing courses such as digital construction analytics, construction technology, architectural technology and construction management.
Autodesk, better known for its AutoCAD software, will have a designated space through which it will train students via the Autodesk Construction Cloud. Autodesk will also provide access to courses to its own staff.
Construction of the €22m project will begin during this year.
