The Telecommunications Graduate Initiative (TGI) has the primary aim of making Ireland the best European location for research in the broad domain of telecommunications including physical transportation of data, networking protocols/architectures and telecommunications service delivery. Work in these disciplines is underpinned by advanced mathematical techniques and generic skills targeting research methods and innovation.

Research in ICT is the primary focus of research activity at the School of Electronic and Communications Engineering at DIT. The ICT area has been identified as a strategically important research strength for DIT. There are currently twelve permanent academic staff engaged in ICT research. There are three substantial signature ICT research areas, Wireless Communications Systems; Antennas & High Frequencies and Photonics. Each of these signature areas is underpinned by a group led by one or more Principal Investigators with the support of other academic staff, several post-docs, dedicated accommodation, doctoral graduate students, access to funding and proven substantial outcomes in publication and/or intellectual property and commercialization metrics. There is also a range of other ICT related research areas including liquid crystal switching for optical networks, MIMO systems, high speed transmission over powerlines and wireless channels and distributed systems.
