Degree Courses in Civil and Structural Engineering - a Personal View

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
