The Faculty has a distinguished history of research and we count Nobel Laureates among our distinguished former staff and students.

Our work crosses traditional subject boundaries, creating cutting-edge research in non-traditional disciplines and interdisciplinary programmes which benefit from King’s broad subject base.

We have a wide range of research interests in science, technology and engineering, ranging from the very small to the infinite. From nanophotonics to cosmology, mechatronics to wireless communication, cell biology to theoretical physics; we are working at all levels to understand our universe and to change it for the better. 

Our research centres in Net Zero, the Physical Science of Life, King's Quantum and Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) bring together researchers from different subjects across the faculty and university, with the aim of advancing innovative, interdisciplinary solutions to complex societal and environmental challenges.

Our thriving ecosystem of enterprise and innovation enables researchers to work with a range of industrial, public sector, cultural, and academic partners.
