Engineering and Physical Science

Scotland has a 1.8% share of the world’s research citations which is ranked ahead any of the G8 nations. The country has been well-recognised as a land of pioneers.

Since the development of Thermodynamics theory by Kelvin and Rankine. The achievement in improving steam engine efficiency by James Watt at the University of Glasgow led to the Industrial Revolution in Europe. Maxwell’s Electromagnetic Theory consolidates all previously theory in electricity, magnetism and optics into one consistent theory. At present, Scotland still remains one of the world’s leaders in the field of engineering from inventions. Scottish universities are renowned for many engineering specializations such as AI at University of Edinburgh, Oil & Gas at University of Aberdeen and Dundee, Computer Game at University of Abertay and the UK top Logistics research center is located at Heriot-Watt University. Electrical & Electronic Engineering at Strathclyde, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Chemical and Process Engineering at Heriot Watt, Edinburgh and Strathclyde. Aeronautical, Manufacturing, and Mechanical Engineering at Strathclyde. The country produces 1% of the world’s published research with less than 0.1% of the world’s population.
