Black students do not lack ability or ambition. Yet, they have lower attainment in post-16 and undergraduate engineering education. This leads to subsequent under-representation in various engineering careers.
Our vision is to change this and to have a more diverse and representative community across King’s. The Success for Black Engineers programme will kick-start our journey to achieve this positive change.
We have carefully reviewed the findings of the Hamilton Commission Report and our project, 'Success for Black Engineers,' aims to better understand the needs of pre-university black students interested in engineering degrees and our own black engineering students. We aim to develop and deploy a series of measures that will better support these students and ensure their success at King’s.– Kawal Rhode, Professor of Biomedical Engineering and the Head of Education, School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences
