Yon men-sou apwòch nan ansèyman
Nou konnen pratik, aprantisaj aplike, rechèch ak ansèyman andedan-soti. Li nan sa nou te toujou fè. Pa angaje ak biznis sou pwoblèm reyèl, pwojè byen, ak rechèch reyèl - elèv nou jwenn pratik, eksperyans-lavi reyèl ak patwon-an vin gradye endistri-anfòm.
Nou gwo ase yo atire kèk nan ekspè yo ki mennen nan jaden yo epi nou ap ti ase yo bay elèv nou chans nan aprann nan men yo - pa nan bra-Length, men men-sou.
gradye Trè anplwa
Nou bay elèv nou yo yon gou reyèl la nan bagay sa yo rive nan karyè yo - yo pa sèlman konnen ki sa fè, men yo menm tou konnen ki jan yo fè l '. Li poutèt sa nou ran 15 nan UK a pou salè mwayèn kòmanse nan £ 23.285 ak 94% elèv yo nan travay oswa plis etid nan lespas de sis mwa nan gradyasyon.
Yon eksperyans se vre wi: mondyal
Nou bay yon pèspektiv global ak eksperyans - kò akademik ak elèv nou se yon melanj divès entènasyonal ak 1/3 elèv nou an nan lakou lekòl la Scottish nou an vini soti nan lòt bò dlo. Nou gen kanpis nan kote kle yo atravè mond lan nan Malezi ak Emira Arab Ini kòm byen ke UK a - ofri elèv nou opòtinite pou rival yo transfere ant kanpis ak pou jwenn yon edikasyon vrèman mondyal.

Heriot-Watt was established as the School of Arts of Edinburgh by Scottish businessman Leonard Horner on 16 Oktòb 1821. Having been inspired by Anderson’s College in Glasgow, Horner established the School to provide practical knowledge of science and technology to Edinburgh’s working men.The institution was initially of modest size, giving lectures two nights a week in rented rooms and boasting a small library of around 500 technical works. It was also oversubscribed, with admissions soon closing despite the cost of 15 shillings for a year’s access to lectures and the library.
The School was managed by a board of eighteen directors and primarily funded by sponsors from the middle and upper classes includingRobert Stevenson and Walter Scott. It first became associated with the inventor and engineer James Watt in 1824, as a means of raising funds to secure permanent accommodation. Justifying the association, School Director Lord Cockburn said:
“[bilding lan] shall be employed for the accommodation of the Edinburgh School of Arts; whereby the memory of Watt may forever be connected with the promotion, among a class of men to which he himself originally belonged, of those mechanical arts from which his own usefulness and glory arose.”
nan 1837, the School of Arts moved to leased accommodation on Adam Square, which it was able to purchase in 1851 thanks to funds raised in Watt’s name. In honour of the purchase, the School changed its name to the Watt Institution and School of Arts nan 1852.
Heriot-Watt’s time as the Watt Institution marked a transitional period for the organisation, as its curriculum broadened to include several subjects beyond mathematics and the physical sciences. While the School of Arts had catered almost exclusively to working-class artisans and technical workers, the Watt Institution admitted a large number of middle-class students, whom it attracted with new subjects in the sciences, syans sosyal ak syans imanitè. pa 1885, the skilled working class were no longer the majority in an institution that had been created explicitly for them.
A shifting class make-up was not the only demographic change to affect the student body, as in 1869 women were permitted to attend lectures for the first time. This move put the Watt Institution some way ahead of Scottish universities, who were only permitted to allow women to graduate 20 years later following the Universities (Scotland) Act of 1889. The decision to admit women was made in large part owing to pressure from local campaigner Mary Burton, who later became the Institution’s first female director in 1874.
nan 1870, the Watt Institution was forced to move following the demolition of Adam Square. After a brief period on Roxburgh Place, it relocated to the newly constructedChambers Street near where its former site had stood. The move caused the Institution severe financial difficulties, which were compounded by a combination of declining funds from subscribers and increased costs from its growing student body. nan 1873, the Directors turned to George Heriot’s Trust for support, and agreed to a merger of the Trust’s endowment with the Institution’s own. The proposed merger was provisional to changes in the structure of the Watt Institution, which would see the organisation become a technical college with representatives of the Trust in management positions. Accepting these changes, the Watt Institution officially became Heriot-Watt College nan 1885, and was subsequently on far firmer financial ground.
After the establishment of Heriot-Watt as a technical college, the new management committee set about extending the institution’s buildings and strengthening its academic reputation. In its new form the College was one of only three non-university institutions in the UK with the power to appoint professors, and the first of these was appointed in 1887. nan 1902 the College became a central institution, while in 1904 it introduced awards for graduating students which were similar to university degrees.
Expansion meant that the College made increasing demands on George Heriot’s Trust throughout the first part of the 20th century, which ultimately led to the independence of the two bodies in 1927. While the Trust continued to pay Heriot-Watt a fixed sum each year, from then on the College was responsible for managing its own financial affairs. Heriot-Watt continued to expand after becoming independent, opening a new extension in 1935.
Both World Wars impacted on the speed of the College’s expansion. During World War I, student numbers dropped as young men joined the army, while teaching in engineering stalled as the department was used for the manufacture of shells and munitions. Pandan Dezyèm Gè Mondyal, student numbers dropped again and the electrical engineering department became involved in training the armed services in the use of radar.
After the College introduced a postgraduate award in 1951, it offered awards equivalent to university degrees and doctorates in all practical respects. Recognising this, nan 1963 theRobbins Report recommended that it should be awarded university status. Sou 1 fevriye 1966 the recommendation was enacted, as the institution officially became Heriot-Watt University.
While Heriot-Watt continued to expand in the centre of Edinburgh after attaining university status, the institution had grown big enough that relocation was felt to be desirable. nan 1966 Midlothian County Council gifted the Riccarton estate north of Currie to the University and in 1969 work began on transforming the site into a future campus. The process of relocation to Riccarton continued until 1992, with teaching and facilities divided between the new campus and the city centre until this time.
The University continued to grow after completing its move to Riccarton, constructing additional student halls, a sports centre and a postgraduate centre on the site. The institution also expanded beyond Edinburgh, merging with the Scottish College of Textiles to create a campus in the Scottish Borders in 1998, opening a campus in Dubai in 2006 and a campus in Putrajaya, Malaysia in 2012.
