Dates of existence
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was formed in 1964 on the establishment of the University of Strathclyde when the former Royal College of Science and Technolgy Department of Mechanical, Civil and Chemical Engineering was split into three departments, one of which was Mechanical Engineering.
In 1970, several units within the department, namely the Bioengineering Unit, Dynamics and Control, Engineering Design, Production Engineering, Mechanics of Materials and Thermodynamics and Mechanics of Fluids, became independent departments or units.
