Heriot-Watt University

With a history dating back to 1821, Heriot-Watt University has established a reputation for world-class teaching and practical, leading-edge research, which has made us one of the top UK universities for business and industry.

Heriot-Watt is recognised internationally as a centre for high calibre research in science, engineering and business. We’ve been rated as a leading research institution by the RAE, the national review body, and are now in the top 35 universities in the UK for our research.

We continue to attract significant research funding year on year and nearly 90% of our academic staff are involved in research activity.

In addition, we play a leading role in research pooling which has enabled us to create and participate in a range of internationally pre-eminent centres.

Our Research Park was the first of its kind in Europe, providing direct access to our expertise for a range of companies based there.
