The University of Strathclyde, or simply Strathclyde, is the first technological institution for higher education in the United Kingdom. Established in 1796, it is also the second oldest university in Glasgow, Scotland. Strathclyde was originally called Andersonian Institute. The name was changed in honor of the Kingdom of Strathclyde, which was one of Southern Scotland’s earliest medieval kingdoms.
A reputable public research university, the University of Strathclyde has been trusted by prestigious research organizations not only in the U.K. but also also globally. Among these organizations is the largest contract research firm in the country, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft has teamed up with the University of Strathclyde to establish the Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics right inside the university campus. The center aims to conduct research studies in security, healthcare, transport, energy, and others.
In 2012, Strathclyde became the only European university that became part of a global research project called the Global Industry-Academia Cooperation Programme. This global commercialization project was led by South Korea and financed by South Korea's Ministry of Knowledge and Economics. Strathclyde’s engineers also played a key role in the €4 million Stardust project, a cutting-edge research training network that was founded to conduct investigation on space debris removal as well as asteroid deflection.
When it comes to academic programs, the University of Strathclyde has more than 200 undergraduate courses that encompass different areas of study, such as accounting, architecture, biomedical engineering, business analysis and technology, computer and electronic systems, and more. Pursuing postgraduate studies leads to either postgraduate taught or postgraduate research programs. Under postgraduate taught, some of the over 200 programs offered are Master’s in 5G Advanced Communications, Master’s in Autonomous Robotic Intelligent Systems, Counselling and Psychotherapy, and others. Meanwhile, postgraduate research programs are generally PhD-level studies where some of the areas of focus include naval architecture and marine engineering, physics, pharmacy, educational psychology, biofluid mechanics, and more.
As part of Stratclyde’s transformation plan to create a world-class academic and professional environment, the university invested £1 billion in the construction of new establishments, as well as the restoration of existing facilities. One of these facilities is the Wolfson building, which is going to house the U.K.’s best biomedical engineering department. Another is the Technology and Innovation Centre Zone, which is a part of a bigger project—the Glasgow City Innovation District, the planned center for businesses and organizations that will work with Strathclyde to cultivate innovative research and transformative technology.
