History of Electronics and Electrical Engineering at The University of Edinburgh

Preamble

The earliest activities can be traced back to Fleeming Jenkin (1833-85), an outstanding electrical and telegraphic cable engineer, also known for his work in establishing units of electrical measurement and for his invention of the aerial tramway. His first major engineering project was in 1855, fitting out the SS Elba at Birkenhead to retrieve a subsea electrical telegraphic cable lost in the Mediterranean. In 1861, Jenkin collaborated on the laying the Malta-Alexandria undersea cable.
