A Showcase of Henry Dyer: Collaborations and Exchanges between Glasgow and Japan
Monday, 23rd September 2019
The University of Glasgow is delighted to invite you to the Henry Dyer Memorial Event, on the afternoon of the 23rd September, to celebrate the long-standing links between Japan and the City of Glasgow.
The year 2023 marks the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Imperial School of Engineering in Tokyo, by Henry Dyer - a protege of Rankine and a graduate of both Anderson's College (now University of Strathclyde) and The University of Glasgow. This later became the Faculty of Engineering in The University of Tokyo. In doing so, the School of Telegraphy was formed, and resulted in the creation of the oldest Electronic Engineering Department in the world.
We initiate our celebration program with this event to highlight these historic links and showcase existing collaborations and exchanges, whilst providing information for possible Fellowship and Grant opportunities.
We are also delighted to announce that Archive Services will kindly be showcasing some fascinating pieces from the University of Glasgow Henry Dyer Collection on the day for guests to enjoy.
