Success for Black Engineers

A new programme from King’s College London designed to better support

  • Black school children in years 9 to 12 into engineering courses
  • Black undergraduate biomedical, electronic and general engineering students


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.
