Department of Engineering

Welcome from Professor Barbara Shollock, Head of Department of Engineering

Welcome to the Department of Engineering at King's College London.

Engineering at King’s is growing. Our vision is to create a vibrant environment that looks to lead and deliver innovation in engineering education and to capture emerging research areas that address new technological and societal challenges. Our London location provides new ways to look at old problems – like ‘how can we revolutionise transport?’. These questions require not only technical answers, but legal, policy, social, economic and entrepreneurial solutions. That is the mindset we are building for King’s engineers; we are equipping them for future success in an ever-changing world.

Professor Barbara Shollock


Engineering relies on a way of thinking that combines mathematical and analytical skills with a desire to find innovative solutions to problems. If you are naturally curious, or the kind of person who asks ‘why’ things are the way they are and how they can be improved, then studying in the Department of Engineering at King’s could be for you.

King’s has a distinguished history of Engineering research. We are currently doing research across a wide range of disciplines and applications including mechatronics, wireless communication, signal and information processing, control, and user-facing engineering. We apply our research in a range of sectors - robotics, telecommunications, healthcare and cultural spheres - and our aim is to grow our existing research activities but also to establish new research themes, building on the strength and interdisciplinarity of King’s more generally.
