Aston University

Aston University is a small university situated in Birmingham in the United Kingdom with a strong science and technology emphasis. Founded in 1895 as The Birmingham Municipal Technical School, it officially became Aston University on recept of its Royal Charter on 22 April 1966.

In November 2003, the neighbouring University of Central England asked Aston to condider a merger. If Aston agrees, this would probably take place in August 2006.
