Our future

Supported by significant university investment, the faculty is embarking on a period of ambitious growth and investment, which aims to build upon current strengths in natural and mathematical sciences and establish King’s as an outstanding global institution in science and technology.

The Department of Informatics

The Department of Informatics delivers the highest quality undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in computer science through the commitment and enthusiasm of its staff within a stimulating, research-led context. The department has grown by circa 30% in the last four years to 81 academic staff in total. With a total population of 1500 undergraduates, 300 postgraduates and 150 PhD students, the overall student figures have grown by 43% over the last five years. This year also saw the successful launch of a new suite of Undergraduate programmes for the department in Artificial Intelligence. The department offers a variety of full-time BSc and MSci degrees designed to provide transferable skills, giving our students a head start in their career. Our undergraduate Computer Science programmes equip our students with an in-depth knowledge of the field of computer-based information systems. Studying in the Department of Informatics gives our students access to academics who are renowned in their field and who are researching and developing cutting-edge technology to advance society. Research in the Department of Informatics is of the highest quality and covers a broad range of sub-disciplines of Computer Science considering fundamental scientific questions as well as practical challenges and opportunities of the increasingly complex digital society. Our research groups are based on common scientific areas, whilst our hubs focus on external research challenges, which often require expertise and ideas from multiple sub-disciplines. The intersecting lattice-like structure of groups and hubs in Informatics provides a robust framework which supports Informatics' commitment to research of the highest scientific quality and its ambition to increase the external impact of its research. The departmental research activity is supported by a number of grants, which fund research posts and equipment and facilitate collaboration with external research partners. A remarkable upward trend of total research income for the department is illustrative of the thriving research activity. The main source of the departmental research income are grants from EPSRC (~60%), with further funding from the UK Government and from EU, each contributing 10-15%, and some funding from UK and industry. The department hosts the Centre for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) London. CUSP London is a collaboration between King’s College London and New York University. It is a multi-disciplinary research centre that brings together researchers, businesses, and government agencies, to apply data science and visual analytics to challenges in and for London. In collaboration with the Department of Chemistry, and the Department of Physics' Biological Physics and Soft Matter Group, we are also part of the Centre for the Physical Science of Life. Informatics is also home to the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Safe and Trusted Artificial Intelligence (STAI), in partnership with Imperial College London, which aims to train a new generation of scientists and engineers who are experts in methods of safe and trusted AI. The Department is located on the Strand Campus in the heart of central London, close to the cultural activities of the West End and the South Bank, the major departments of state at Whitehall, and the leading financial institutions of the City, and within easy reach of major transport links. The Department is based in the historic and recently redeveloped Bush House, which features state-of-the-art teaching and research spaces.
