Glasgow University is closing the engineering and chemical engineering departments at the request of a senior executive following a reduction in its student numbers.

The university announced the decision on Tuesday.

“The engineering department will remain in operation as a standalone unit,” the university said in a statement.

“There will be no further change to the university’s academic, vocational or postgraduate course structure, but there will be a change to its curriculum, which is a key part of the university experience for all our students.”

A university spokesman said the move was due to “significant and ongoing pressures”.

“There has been a reduction of engineering students in recent years, which we have been unable to keep up with.

“Our aim is to make the university attractive for students, as well as the broader workforce.””
