The Department of Architectural Technology maintains academic links with architectural technology programmes throughout Ireland and with architectural technology programmes in other countries.
The department would be pleased to make links with staff and students of other academic institutions, both in Ireland and internationally and would welcome enquiries in this regard.
Academic links are currently centred on what has emerged as the Irish Architectural Technology Educator's Forum which is a gathering of architectural technology educators who have agreed to meet annually in September with a view to discussing the future of architectural technology in Ireland.
The first gathering took place on 7 June 2004 when over 50 delegates attended a conference in DIT.

A further gathering took place on 14 September 2006 where it was agreed to form the Irish Architectural Technology Educator's Forum, with Waterford IT agreeing to host the September 2007 event.
