The School of Mechanical, Aerospace & Civil Engineering (or “MACE”) at the University of Manchester was formed from three departments in the 2004 merger between the Victoria University of Manchester(VUM) and UMIST. The merged departments were the Department of Civil and Construction Engineering which was joint between both universities, the Department of Mechanical Aerospace and Manufacturing Engineering at UMIST and the Manchester School of Engineering at VUM. Each of the former departments had long histories of excellence in engineering including Joule’s part in the foundation of what was to become UMIST, Whittworth’s contribution to founding both institutions and Osborne Reynolds’s study of Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamics in the 1890s.
