Elmbank Street.
(Founded in the i2tli century.)
The school is one of the oldest institutions of the city, but
the exact date of its origin is unknown ; it is certain, how-
ever, that it was in existence before tlie University, for
in records prior to the foundation of the latter, the Doctor
of the Grammar School is honourably mentioned.

The College was established in 1886 by an Order in
Council amalgamating several old institutions, notably
Anderson's College, founded in 1796, and the first technical
college in the kingdom ; the College of Science and Arts, the
successor of the first Mechanics' Institute; the "Young"
Chair of Technical Chemistry ; Allan Glen's Institution ; and
the Atkinson Institution. The College, as now constituted,
offers complete courses of instruction of University standard
in pure and applied science, and is specially designed to give
the most suitable education to students intending to enter
an industrial profession or trade. The complete course of
study extends over at least three years, but students are at
liberty to enter for any less period. The instruction in both
the day and evening classes is made as practical as possible,
and there are fully equipped laboratories in the depart-
ments of natural philosophy, chemistry, geology, technical
chemistry, mechanics, metallurgy, mechanical engineering,
and electrical engineering. The museum contains several
important collections, and the library consists of about
10,000 volumes, including many valuable works. The
reading room is provided with the current issues of the
principal scientific and technical journals. The diploma of
the College carries with it the title of "Associate of the
Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College "(A.G.T.C),
and associates are eligible for admission to the final examina-
tions for the degree of B.Sc. in Engineering of Glasgow
University after attendance upon three prescribed classes in
the University for one academical year. There are many
valuable bursaries and scholarships in connection with the
