The University of Salford

The University of Salford formed from a merger of technical colleges and institutes, created to educate and train a growing workforce. With a past entrenched in industry, we have continued to build on our principles of getting students work-ready. Read more about our heritage and how it has shaped the organisation we are today.

Our past is rooted in the great Industrial Revolution of the 19th Century, which changed the world. Salford’s thriving textile industry was fed by the Manchester Ship Canal, which opened in 1894 and gave the city direct trade access to the sea.
The Salford docks brought employment until the latter half of the 20th Century. When the old industries went into decline, demand for new industrial skills led to the formation of the Pendleton Mechanics Institute in 1850 and the Salford Working Men’s College in 1858.
These merged at the end of the century to form the Royal Technical Institute, Salford, which was opened by the Duke and Duchess of York (who later became King George V and Queen Mary) in 1896.
