1907 The Imperial College of Science and Technology was established as a constituent college of the University of London. It was created by bringing together the Central Technical College of the City and Guilds of London Institute, the Royal School of Mines and the Royal College of Science. The Central Technical College would be known as the City and Guilds College; it would continue to be managed by a committee of the City and Guilds of London Institute; it would continue to award diplomas and, until issues of its incorporation in the University could be resolved, it would be known as a "school" of the University.
