Birmingham is a city and metropolitan borough of the county of West Midlands, England, standing on the River Rea. It is the largest and most populous city in the United Kingdom, as well as the centre of the second largest urban area (after London). Perhaps the most important invention in British history, the industrial steam engine, was invented in Birmingham. Birmingham's modern-day economy is dominated by the service sector. The city is a major international commercial centre, ranked as a gamma+ world city by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network; and an important transport, retail, events and conference hub. People from Birmingham are called Brummies, a term derived from the city's nickname of "Brum", which itself originates from the city's old name, Brummagem.

University of Birmingham

The University of Birmingham is a public research university located in Edgbaston, Birmingham, United Kingdom. It received its royal charter in 1900 as a successor to Queen's College, Birmingham (founded in 1825 as the Birmingham School of Medicine and Surgery) and Mason Science College (established in 1875 by Sir Josiah Mason), making it the first English civic or 'red brick' university to receive its own royal charter. It is a founding member of both the Russell Group of British research universities and the international network of research universities, Universitas 21. The University of Birmingham Guild of Students is the university's student union. The Union Building, the Guild's bricks and mortar presence, was designed by the architect Holland W. Hobbiss.
