University of Sunderland

The University of Sunderland is located in Sunderland, North East England. The University has more than 17,500 students, including 7,000-plus international students from some 70 countries. The University was named the 'Best English University for student experience' by the Times Higher Education Supplement in December 2005. The University's roots can be traced back to 1901, when Sunderland Technical College was established as a municipal training college on Green Terrace (the site of the former Galen Building). It was the first to offer sandwich courses. Pharmacy and naval architecture departments were established in 1921 and 1922 respectively. From 1930, some students in the Faculty of Applied Science read for degrees of the University of Durham. Also in 1930, a Mining Department was established and pharmacy students could read for the Bachelor of Pharmacy degree of the University of London. In the 1960s a PDP-8 hybrid computer was installed at the Chester Road site. A new complex of buildings, including Students Union and Hall of Residence facilities, on nearby Chester Road was opened by the Duke of Edinburgh in 1964.

  • Maria Ly is quite literally a Rock Star. You’ll often find her hanging off a 5.13a grade rock climbing route, she is the rock star co-founder of Skimble (which is incubated by Rock Health), and you can find her rock formation photography featured in Outside Magazine.

  • March 13, 1988 was the day we moved to America. Although it wasn't my first time in the country, that date was the beginning of my journey through the American school system. Those eleven years filled me with a lifetime of great memories.

  • Mayank is an inventor and zebra-enthusiast. He developed Stripespotter, a biological barcode scanner for zebras, and is a part of the team behind Facebook insights. By way of India to Oman to the US, Mayank can be found behind the wheel of a red Porsche dreaming up his next big idea.
