History

Dougal MacLeod White was born in 1943 and studied at the Royal College of Science and Technology. He enrolled in autumn 1961 for the Associateship course in Mechanical Engineering, but before he completed his studies, the Royal College of Science and Technology merged with the Scottish College of Commerce to become the University of Strathclyde. Continuing students were given the choice of graduating with a degree from the new University or with the Associateship qualification, and White opted for the former, receiving a B.Sc. (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering on 30 October 1965. He then enrolled for postgraduate study and the University awarded him the Henry Bell Scholarship of £200. This scholarship, only available to candidates holding a BSc (Hons) degree and intending to pursue research in engineering, had been founded in memory of Henry Bell on the occasion of the 'Comet' centenary. White duly completed a thesis on 'Cavitation in Thin Films' and graduated with an MSc in Mechanical Engineering on 29 October 1966. He went on to become a Chartered Engineer and is a Fellow of both the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineers and Shipbuilders in Scotland.
