Το Πανεπιστήμιο πήρε το όνομά του από τον οικονομολόγο George Heriot και τον μηχανικό James Watt γνωστό για την ανακάλυψη της ατμομηχανής, στη δημιουργία του όμως έπαιξε ρόλο και ο Adam Smith.Το Πανεπιστήμιο προσφέρει καινοτομικά και εφαρμοσμένα προγράμματα σπουδών σε ένα ευρύ φάσμα θεμάτων.

Το Πανεπιστήμιο Heriot Watt συνεχίζοντας την παράδοση των ιδρυτών του, εξακολουθεί να ευημερεί ως εκπαιδευτικός οργανισμός ο οποίος βρίσκεται στην αιχμή της τεχνολογίας, ενώ παράλληλα αυξάνει την φήμη του για την ακαδημαϊκή του έρευνα και τα καινοτομικά του προγράμματα.
