History

With a history dating back to 1821, we have a long and rich tradition of excellence and a proven track record of educating, inspiring and challenging the professionals of tomorrow.Origins of our nameThe University's name commemorates George Heriot, the 16th century philanthropist and financier to King James, and James Watt, the great 18th century inventor and engineer: two successful, leading edge professionals of their time, whose skills and attitudes are still reflected in the ethos of the University today.Our history began in 1821 when the School of Arts of Edinburgh was established, the world's first Mechanics Institute, which revolutionised access to education in science and technology for ordinary people.In 1851 the name changed to the Watt Institution & School of Arts, and again in 1885, to Heriot-Watt College.
