Watt a legend

As part of our 200-year anniversary celebrations, we invite you to get involved in our #WattALegend campaign where we will celebrate and showcase our exceptional One Watt community.

We want you to share your #WattALegend with us. Who within the One Watt community past or present has inspired you? Are they a pioneer or innovator? Have they made a difference in the world or their community? Did they make a difference to you during your time at Heriot-Watt?

Help us tell the story of the people who have made Heriot-Watt what it is today and who are shaping our future for tomorrow. We are aiming for 200 legends but we know there are a lot more out there!

Your nomination could be someone famous or unsung, an alumnus, a staff member, a student, or a member of our wider University community. Whoever it is - let's recognise them as #WattALegend!

How to take part
