Engineering was first taught as a recognised subject in some British universities from around 1830 onwards. In both University College and King’s College, London, engineering was taught from their foundation (1828 and 1831, respectively), with a ‘Professorship of the Arts of Construction in connection with Civil Engineering’ established at King’s College in 1840 and a professorship in ‘Civil Engineering’ at University College in 1841. A chair of ‘Civil Engineering’ was established at Glasgow University in 1840, and Trinity College Dublin achieved an established chair in 1841. Engineering was also taught at Durham University from its foundation in 1837 and in Queen’s College, Belfast, after 1843, though neither at that time had a professorship. M.R. Horne

As a result of my Chairman’s Address to the Thames Valley Branch in 1987, I have been asked to write and present the introduction to the Ordinary Meeting being held on 26 January 1989. It is intended that, following my introduction, the meeting takes the form of a general discussion, with other Part 3 examiners being present on the platform. B.W.J. Boys
