  • US donor supports innovative COVID-19 initiatives

    In these unprecedented times we are thrilled and humbled that our alumni around the world continue to support us, for COVID-19 related activity and for our ongoing priorities.

    Based in California, Leslie Stretch (Economic and Social History and Industrial Relations, 1983), has supported many projects at the University over a number of years, including an invaluable scholarship scheme.

    Most recently, Leslie funded a Doctoral Research Centre (DRC) through the University of Strathclyde’s USA Foundation: part funding up to three PhDs focusing on crucial challenges related to COVID-19 recovery for children facing adversity.

  • Four generations of engineers from same family come through Strathclyde in a century

    When James McHarg started studying engineering at the-then Royal Technical College in Glasgow in 1916, he could have had no way of knowing his son, grandson and the great grandson he would never meet would follow in his footsteps.

    At the age of just 15 he started an incredible family association with the University of Strathclyde which has seen four generations study here in the institution’s various forms across more than 100 years, with the latest McHarg graduating this week.
