Celebrating 50 Years

Our 50th anniversary is a significant milestone in our history and development.  It provides us with an opportunity to reflect on our rich past, and look forward to an exciting future, as we continue to develop as one of the world’s great technology universities.

The website ‘Celebrating 50 years’ provides access to photographs, articles and other treasures from our archives.  It captures memories and anecdotes from everyone associated with the University: staff, students, alumni, friends, colleagues and partners. 

We have never been an ivory tower.  We have always been committed to making a difference to the world, delivering professional and vocational courses with great job prospects for our graduates, and doing cutting-edge applied research that improves peoples’ lives directly.  Our motto says it all: we believe fiercely in ‘Making Knowledge Work’.

I hope you enjoy this website: re-discovering our past 50 years of success, and reflecting on our next 50 years of further development.
