University of Strathclyde

Founded in 1796 as “the place of useful learning,” today the University of Strathclyde is a world-leading technological institution with over 23,000 students and 3500 staff from more than 100 nations.

In Strathclyde, we translate knowledge into high-impact outcomes that benefit business, industry, and society, and produce workplace-ready graduates in engineering, business, the sciences, and humanities. We are positioned among the top 20 research-intensive universities in the UK, and have forged collaborative connections between academia, business and industry, and the government and public sector through our distinctive triple helix approach. These relationships enable us to contribute to international multidisciplinary challenges including improving health, transforming energy, setting new standards in manufacturing, and shaping future cities. While our reputation and influence are global, we are an institution firmly grounded in the heart of Glasgow.

We have created a thriving innovation ecosystem around our campus, which supports the translation of new knowledge into impactful commercial applications by connecting our expertise to our industrial partners. At the centre of this ecosystem is the Glasgow City Innovation District, launched by Strathclyde in 2019 as Scotland’s first innovation district. The District is a hub for entrepreneurship, research, and collaboration, having already attracted a dense community of over forty leading innovative organisations and centres that have created significant new jobs and investment. Strathclyde is also an anchor university for the National Manufacturing Institute of Scotland (NMIS), an industry-led international centre of manufacturing expertise led by the Scottish Government in partnership with its enterprise and skills agencies.

Strathclyde is a multi-award-winning university. Our achievements in research, collaborative innovation, and education have been recognised through several high-profile awards, including:
