About Middlesex University

The University of Middlesex is a public research university in Hendon, northwest London, England. The university name is taken from its position within the historic Middlesex county boundaries.

Middlesex University was established in Tottenham, north-east London in 1878, when St. Katherine's College was founded. In 1973, Middlesex Polytechnic was established following the incorporation of seven other colleges before gaining university status in 1992.

Over 25,000 students from around 140 countries are staffed by the university.

Significant developments in Middlesex include the invention of a thermionic valve used to build the first computer in the world (1904) and the invention of a new type of metal called argentium silver, (1990).

In 2017, the university opened the UK's first ever cyber factory, where students gain experience in getting them ready for future workplace jobs and business opportunities.
