The Department of Engineering is growing.

We are building a community of engineering researchers at the heart of the Strand Campus.

We focus on both discovery research and applied research, leveraging the synergies between conventional engineering and leading-edge technologies to solve the problems of today and those we will face tomorrow. Our research supports global challenges and national prosperity, helping to make a better world and to improve people’s lives.

We work in partnership with our colleagues at King’s and other universities across the country and the world. Our collaborations are wide-ranging from arts and humanities, law, healthcare, social sciences as well as policy makers, cultural partners, and industry.

We bring a diversity of perspectives and a variety of skills together in six themes 

  • Communication & Information Engineering
  • Design & Mechatronics
  • Manufacturing, Materials & Systems
  • Signals & Control
  • Computational Engineering
  • Data-Centric Engineering

These themes draw on our underlying expertise across engineering disciplines. Our themes allow us to take a systems approach to engineering challenges. They stimulate new directions for research and provide a focus for staff development.  We support our research staff and PhD students in their career choice, whatever that may be.

Our research themes are...

Signals & Control

Signals & Control

Applying signal processing and control to generate adaptive intelligent systems


Our research expertise

Our research is rooted in our established expertise in computational engineering, machine learning and signals and controls.

Our growth draws in new areas of expertise to address current challenges from sustainable design and use of resources to energy and advanced materials.
