University of Strathclyde, Glasgow (UK)
The University of Strathclyde is a leading international technological university which prides itself on partnerships with public and private sectors. Established in 1796 as a place of ‘useful learning,' the University remains committed to research, teaching and being of benefit to society. We reach outside the University to make society better educated, prosperous, healthy, fair and secure, through excellence in research, education, knowledge exchange and creative engagement with partner organisations locally, nationally and internationally.
We are a university that makes a positive difference to the lives of students, society and the world. Our strategic aim is to develop students who are engaged, enterprising, enquiring, and ethically, globally and culturally aware; work-ready graduates with impact who engage with societal and global challenges.
Our heritage of useful learning and high quality student experience is based on our staff’s commitment and enthusiasm. We work together to create a culture of collaboration and integration and are committed to widening access to education.
Strathclyde’s focus is on useful learning and employability. As well as an award winning Careers service there is close engagement with industry through industrial placements for students and research facilities such as our Technology & Innovation Centre. This facility is transforming the way academics, business, industry and the public sector work in partnership. We're working together to find solutions to challenges that matter in areas including energy, health, future sustainable cities and manufacturing.
