Welcome to NMES

Delivering sustainable academic excellence

We are a vibrant faculty based in the heart of London with a long tradition of world-leading research and teaching in physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer science and engineering.

Our internationally-renowned scientists are working across traditional subject boundaries, leading cutting-edge research, tackling global challenges and answering fundamental questions about our universe.

Our vision 

We come together with a shared purpose and vision: To advance and promote academic excellence and impact in Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences (NMES) for the benefit of our students, staff, knowledge and society.

To deliver academic excellence and impact, future prosperity in a digital and sustainable world relies on our education and research drawing on strong core disciplines and designed collaboration between disciplines to enhance student learning and speed up discovery and innovation. Interdisciplinarity is at the centre of our academic activities and will be based on key identified themes.

We are promoting an inclusive environment for staff and students alike and building a culture of thriving enterprise and innovation, working together with a range of industrial and international academic partners and organisations.

Education and research

For students, we offer a wide-ranging portfolio of undergraduate, MSc and PhD programmes. Studying with us enables you to work with, and learn from, world-leading academics while benefiting from an open door policy and a wealth of support.

With nearly 5,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students and around 350 academic and research staff, our ambition is to inspire, educate and innovate - fostering the next generation of scientists and future leaders. We count Nobel Laureates among our distinguished former staff and students, and we are committed to promoting the careers of women working in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.


Our unrivalled central London location has enabled us to foster close ties with tech, business and science industries, and we are within easy reach of major research libraries and leading scientific societies such as the Royal Society, Royal Society of Chemistry, BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT, the Institute of Physics, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the London Mathematical Society.

Our future

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