As a result we are taking a look back at the university careers of some international students who graduated BSc 100 years ago: Amar Nath, Sze Shee Woo, and Sze Yune Woo.

Amar Nath, born in Gurdaspur, Punjab, India, enrolled at the University in 1911. During his studies he took classes including Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, and Naval Architecture. He was awarded with a first class certificate in ‘Electricity, Pure and Applied’ and after his graduation in 1913 he returned to Pakistan and worked as a civil engineer in the Chunian District of Lahore.

Amar’s brothers were also graduates of the University of Glasgow: Kedar Nath and Prem Nath.

Sze Shee Woo was born in Nanking (Nanjing), Jiangsu Province, China. He first matriculated in 1909, aged 21, and studied subjects such as Mathematics, Natural Philosophy, Chemistry and Engineering.

Sze Yune Woo first matriculated in the same year as Sze Shee Woo though Sze Yune Woo was born in Loochow Village, Foochow (Fuzhou). He studied similar subjects to Sze Shee Woo: such as Natural Philosophy, Chemistry, Engineering and Geology.
