It is ranked on 368th position globally. It is basically a public research University located in the Uxbridge area of London, England and it was founded in year 1966, BRUNEL COLLEGE of advanced technology was awarded a royal charter and became Brunel University. This University is often known as British plate-glass University. This university is organised into three colleges and three major research institutes. A structure adopted in august 2014 which also changed Universities name into Brunel University London. This university has over 12,900 students and 2500 staff and has a total income of 200.7 million in 2014/15 of which25% came from grants and research contacts.
In 2016, Brunel celebrated 50 years as a university. However, our history can be traced back much further to 1798 through our predecessor colleges of Borough Road College, Maria Grey College, Shoreditch College and the West London Institute of Higher Education and as well as through Acton Technical College then Brunel College. Our rise since 1966 has been impressive and our reputation grows year on year. Now a university of 12,746 students – 3,309 students engaged in postgraduate and research study – our special approach is to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by ISAMBARD Kingdom Brunel. The decision to be named after ISAMBARD Kingdom Brunel was taken after much discussion. Rather than name the new College after a location, Dr Topping, the first Vice Chancellor of Brunel University (and former Principal of Brunel College) pleaded that the name should be a well-known person preferably an engineer or scientist associated in some way with Middlesex or Acton. Agreement was reached in March 1957 that person would be ISAMBARD Kingdom Brunel.
ISAMBARD Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859) is one of the great British engineers of the 19th century. ISAMBARD was born into an industrious family in 1806, with his mother Sophia Kingdom working for the Royal Navy and father Marc Brunel being a prominent French engineer.
When Brunel was awarded its Royal Charter in 1966 they were given a distinct purpose and an incredible opportunity. The campus was to be the home of technological education, championing innovation and advancement, and giving the UK the knowledge base it needed to compete on the international stage.
They conceived a brand of education, and later research, which was overwhelmingly geared towards the needs of industry and, echoing the spirit and vision of our namesake ISAMBARD Kingdom Brunel, they did so with flair and rigour. Their ambition was to equip students for the world of work and to address society’s challenges on a global scale.
The challenges have changed, but their aims are as innovative and ambitious as they always were – to develop research and educational programmes informed by, and tailor-made for, those who benefit; and to give students the academic education and personal skills needed to become a success in the real world.
They will strengthen their position as a leading multidisciplinary research-intensive technology university delivering economic, social and cultural benefit. Excellence, innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit will be at the heart of everything they do.
True to the words of our Royal Charter, we will continue to lead and innovate with new models of research, education and knowledge transfer, placing the needs of society at the heart of our academic activity. They will build on their heritage of working closely with businesses, governments and the not-for-profit sector to fulfil our mission. They will establish strategic partnerships and commercial ventures to strengthen their position and support the University’s long-term sustainability. They will be at the pinnacle of technology universities in the UK and firmly established in the top tier internationally of this special group of institutions. Their success will be a tribute to our students and staff, who will share this vision and work as one to achieve it.
Their mission is to- bring benefit to society through excellence in education, research and knowledge transfer.
