oorsig


Die Universiteit van Sheffield is gestig as 'n honderd jaar gelede, gegrond op die aspirasies en finansiële ondersteuning van die mense van Sheffield. Hulle wou 'n universiteit wat hul ekonomie sal baat vestig, gesondheid en kinders.

Hierdie versiende mans en vroue kan net gewonder op wat gaan gebeur. Vandag is ons 'n globale gemeenskap en ons burgerskap strek oor die hele wêreld in meer as 150 lande. Soos ons stad, ons personeel en studente het wortels en verbindings regoor ons planeet.

Wat ons voortgaan om te doen is gebaseer op ons waardes en gewortel in ons grondbeginsels. Ons benadering inspireer innoverende samewerking oor vakgebiede en met individue, besighede en organisasies om die meer dringende probleme wat ons in die gesig staar op te los, beide naby aan die huis en in die wêreld.

Om 'n burgerlike universiteit beteken dat ons 'n plek vir 'n oop debat, vir saamwerk om probleme op te los en om vennootskappe wat daag en te inspireer nuwe denke. Ons is oop vir mense, om te verander en om die moontlikheid.

Ons is gestig om die werklike impak op die stad se ekonomie te maak en om gesondheid te verbeter. 'N Eeu later, ons dit nog steeds doen.

geskiedenis


The University of Sheffield developed from three local institutions: the Sheffield School of Medicine, Firth College and the Sheffield Technical School. The School of Medicine, founded 1828, was by far the oldest. Its early history was very insecure and it was saved from collapse by the opening of Firth College, which took over the teaching of all basic science subjects to medical students.

Firth College was one of a group of university colleges founded in the later 19th century. It developed out of the Cambridge University Extension Movement, a scheme designed to bring university teaching to the large towns and cities of England, most of which lacked any university provision. The success of these courses in Sheffield led Mark Firth, a local steel manufacturer, to establish the College in 1879 as a centre for teaching Arts and Science subjects.

The Sheffield Technical School

The Sheffield Technical School was the product of local concern about the need for better technical training of the men responsible for running the great industries of Sheffield, particularly steelmaking. A movement was started within Firth College to collect funds to create a technical department, which was established in 1884 as the Sheffield Technical School. in 1886 the School moved to new premises on the site of the old Grammar School at St George’s Square.

in 1897, the three institutions were amalgamated by Royal Charter to form the University College of Sheffield. This step was part of the plan to link up with the Victoria University, a federation of the University Colleges at Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds.

deur 1900, egter, the Federal University was disintegrating and within a few years independent universities were formed from the three University Colleges.

op 31 mag 1905 the University of Sheffield was granted its Royal Charter, and in July the new Firth Court Building on Western Bank was opened by King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. St George’s Square remained the centre of Applied Science departments, with Arts, Medicine and Science being housed at Western Bank.

The University in 1905

At the time of the University’s foundation in 1905 daar was 114 full-time students reading for degrees in Arts, Pure Science, Medicine and Applied Science. in 1919 when returning ex-servicemen were admitted in large numbers, the full-time student figure rose to a short-lived peak of about 1,000. By then the Faculty of Applied Science had split into Engineering and Metallurgy; the University’s first Hall of Residence (the original Stephenson Hall) had been established; and the Edgar Allen library had opened (1909).

At that time the University was as committed to non-degree teaching as to teaching full-time students. Courses covered not only many conventional academic subjects but also topics as diverse as cow-keeping, railway economics, mining and razor-grinding. During the First World War some of these were replaced by teaching of (and participation in) munitions making, medical appliances design and production, translation and politics.

Between the two wars full-time student numbers stabilised at about 750 and expansion into new areas of specialist teaching and research continued slowly. The Second World War brought with it new areas of specialist research and training – in, byvoorbeeld, radar, dietary and vitamin studies, production of anaesthetics and chemicals (as substitutes for materials previously imported from Europe), magnetism, fuel production and economy, naval cartography, glass manufacture and English language teaching.

Since the Second World War

Since the Second World War, many older houses have been brought into academic use and major new buildings have been constructedthe Main Library in 1959, and the Arts Tower, Hicks Building, Alfred Denny Building, Sir Robert Hadfield Building, Chemical Engineering Building, University House, five Halls of Residence and the Union of Students in the 1960s.

New buildings for Geography and Psychology followed in the 1970s, along with the Crookesmoor Building (for Law and Management), the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, and purpose-built student flats. The next decade saw the opening of the Octagon Centre, the Sir Henry Stephenson Building (for engineering), and major extensions at the Northern General Hospital.

In die 1990's, new premises for the School of Clinical Dentistry, die Bestuur Skool, the Division of Education, St George’s Library (incorporating Blackwell’s University Bookshop) and St George’s Flats and Lecture Theatre were opened, together with extensions to Stephenson, Halifax, and Tapton Halls of Residence, and three new blocks of student flats.

The Regent Court building, which houses the Departments of Computer Science and Information Studies and the Sheffield Centre for Health and Related Research, were also completed. The Union of Students underwent a £5 million development programme, improving welfare, social and meetings facilities.

Following the University’s integration with the Sheffield and North Trent College of Nursing and Midwifery in 1995, a building programme provided new facilities for nursing and midwifery teaching and research. This includes the extension and conversion of the St George’s Hospital site on Winter Street, and the construction of a new building at the Northern General Hospital.

The 21st century

The University’s ambitious estates strategy has continued into the new millennium. Campus additions include the £80 million refurbishment programme for laboratories in the medical, biological and physical sciences:

  • Custom-built University Health Centre
  • The Sheffield Bioincubator
  • Multidisciplinary Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences

Other projects include:

  • The Diamond, an £81 million building on the Jessop East site, which has specialist engineering teaching facilities, as well as lecture theatres, seminaarkamers, open-plan learning spaces, library services and social spaces. It is predicted to bring £44.5 million into the local economy during the construction phase and first year of operation, with an ongoing annual contribution to Sheffield’s economy of £20.6 million.
  • A £20 million refurbishment of our award-winning StudentsUnion and landmark University House building. The two buildings have been revamped and integrated to create outstanding facilities and services for students, staff and visitors
  • An £8 million investment programme in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health
  • A £21 million Faculty of Engineering Graduate School, the Pam Liversidge Building, featuring specialist facilities for engineering postgraduate students
  • Refurbishment of our landmark Grade II* listed Arts Tower building
  • Three buildings for the Faculty of Arts and Humanities: The Jessop Building, The Soundhouse and Jessop West
  • £160 million building programme to redevelop residential accommodation on the Endcliffe and Ranmoor sites
  • The inauguration of the £20 million North Campus (housing the Kroto Research Institute and the Nanoscience and Technology Centre)
  • The construction of the £23 million library building, Information Commons

The mile-long ‘campusnow stretches almost unbroken from St George’s Square into Crookesmoor, with student residences concentrated in suburbs to the west of the University. For the first 50 jaar van sy bestaan, the University’s full-time student population did not rise above 2,000. deur 1980, egter, it had reached 8,000 en in 2006 the number of full-time students had risen to 21,000. The total student population is now over 27,000 and includes students from all over the world.
