The university's origins can be traced to the opening in 1896 of the Royal Technical Institute, Salford, a merger of Salford Working Men's College (founded in 1858), and Pendleton Mechanics' Institute (founded in 1850). The Royal Technical Institute received royal letters after the then-Duke and Duchess of York (later King George V and Queen Mary) officiated at its opening ceremony, an event commemorated in the university's Redbrick Peel Building and which allowed 'Royal' to be appended to the name of the institute.Transforming lives. Stimulating discovery. Realizing potential. Through teaching, learning, research, and enterprise, we will harness the skills, imagination, and enthusiasm of our students and staff to work in partnership with large and small enterprises across the public, private and charitable sectors, changing people and communities, and delivering a lasting economic and social benefit.At the start of the 20th century, mechanical engineering, chemical works, textiles, and construction dominated the industrial scene in Salford. This heavily influenced the choice of subjects offered in the nine departments initially opened. These were Engineering, Electrical Engineering & Applied Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Building, Dyeing, Spinning & Weaving, Domestic, and Art. Some 1,240 students registered for the first session in these departments. There were originally 19 members of staff.Underpinning our vision and central to our strategy is our collaboration with the industry. This is a bold departure from traditional structures and models of learning and will provide an outstanding experience for our students, staff, and partners. Industry collaboration is our single strategic priority. It means we develop and nurture outstanding relationships with industry in all aspects of our business, from co-creation of the curriculum and producing job-ready graduates, to research, consultancy, and knowledge exchange.
