Founded in 1451, the University of Glasgow is the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world. The University has fostered the talents of seven Nobel laureates, one Prime Minister and Scotland's inaugural First Minister. Albert Einstein gave his first lecture on the origins of the general theory of relativity at Glasgow. Scotland's first female graduates completed their degrees at Glasgow in 1894 and the world's first ultrasound images of a foetus were published by Glasgow Professor Ian Donald in 1958. In 1840 Glasgow became the first university in the UK to appoint a Professor of Engineering, and in 1957, the first in Scotland to have an electronic computer.
