Creating Belfast explains how technical education contributed to that growth, and how the concept of technical education evolved from the mastery of a trade to include knowledge of the relevant sciences and their possible applications to industry.

Whilst the school system made modest inputs to technical education, the book shows that its development throughout the nineteenth century was critically dependent on the efforts of enthusiasts and philanthropists.
