For almost two centuries we’ve remained true to the values of George Heriot and James Watt – the two giants of industry and commerce who give our university its name. Our foundations are built on practical, applied learning. Education that meets the needs of global industry and enables our students to fulfil their career aspirations.
We shape tomorrow’s work-ready, industry-fit graduates and postgraduates. We connect with industry at every level and develop programmes to match their needs. Real issues, real projects, real research – so our students get practical, reallife experience and the employer gets work- ready industry-fit graduates.
We know practical, applied learning, research and teaching inside-out. It’s what we’ve always done. We’re big enough to attract some of the leading experts in their fields and we’re small enough to give our students the chance to learn from them – not at arms-length, but hands-on.
We provide a global perspective and experience – our academic and student body is a diverse international mix with our students coming from all over the world. We have campuses in the UK as well as Dubai - offering our students the unrivalled opportunity to transfer between campuses and obtain a truly global education.
