The Department of Engineering has an international reputation and critical mass in the fields of robotics and telecommunications with increasing strengths in systems engineering, control, material science and thermofluids. We have a strong grant portfolio in all our major areas of activity. Staff are reputed nationally and internationally and collaborate closely with the KCL Health Schools (including St Thomas’ and Guy’s Hospitals) and numerous industrial partners. The Department is strongly interested in multidisciplinary research at the interfaces between Engineering, Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Computer Science and Medicine.

Key information

Current number of academic staff: Currently Engineering has approximately 50 academic staff. 

Current number of research staff and students: 20 research associates/fellows, approximately 100 MPhil/PhD students across all of our research areas and numerous internationally recognised visiting academics.

Recent publications: All academics in the Department publish regularly in high quality journals, for example IEEE Transactions and ASME Transactions.

Partner organisations: We have strong links with industry, government and other academic institutions.

Recent events: We host workshops and conferences and other regular research meetings. Please check our website for forthcoming events.

Head of group/division: Head of Department Professor Barbara Shollock

Team: Each MPhil/PhD student has a supervisory team consisting of a main supervisor and a second researcher.

Partners: The Department has many partners both industrial and academic, and any individual PhD project may be associated to a partnership.

King’s College London and Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) has  a long standing partnership with joint PhD degrees in the areas of life sciences and medicine. This new degree is an effort to extend the fruitful partnership to the physical science, and engineering areas, within the NMES faculty. The two communication engineering teams at King’s College London and Technische Universität Dresden also have a long standing research collaboration outside the transCampus activities and partnership, and this joint PhD will further build on this collaborative research partnership.

The Admissions Tutor for the Tactile Internet for Tele-healthcare, joint PhD with Technische Universität Dresden MPhil/PhD is Dr Laura Lander in Engineering.

Students are required to spend the equivalent of at least six months at the university partner. Any exceptions to the rule will require approval from the supervisory board. 

Details of a student’s proposed travel plans must be submitted at the time of application.

All students enrolled in the Joint PhD programme will pay normal fees to their home university for the duration of their study (if that university charges fees). For the period that Dresden students will be studying at King’s College London, no fees will be charged by the university.

We are a department with many internationally recognised researchers and visiting academics, large groups of PhD students, research assistants, national and international projects, collaborations with other departments as well as links with industry. We offer an exciting environment and excellent opportunities for research.

Our PhD students have access to good library facilities, designated PhD offices within the Department where PhD students can dock an assigned laptop for use throughout their studies. Regular group seminars are organised providing PhD students with the chance to showcase their research and receive feedback from academic staff and peers. PhD students also have access to college-based training in transferable and research skills.

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, to the major departments of state at Whitehall, the leading financial institutions of the City and within easy reach of major transport links. Our facilities are close to the British Computer Society and the Institute of Engineering & Technology (and the IET Library), with access to a formidable collection of scientific journals and other technical material.

Our staff and students come from all over the world, which provides a rich environment for teaching and research. Diversity is positively encouraged.

Postgraduate training

Faculty and College induction courses are scheduled at the beginning of your degree to prepare you for life as a PhD student. All students are required to complete 10 days of training each year. There is a centrally provided programme of related and transferable skills training coordinated by the Centre for Doctoral Studies.

Research students are also encouraged to submit papers to conferences, and we try to provide financial support for them to travel to present their papers.
Our research students are also encouraged to teach alongside their studies to help prepare them for a potential future career in academia.
