Engineering at King’s is growing. Our vision is to create a vibrant environment that looks to lead and deliver innovation in engineering education and to capture emerging research areas that address new technological and societal challenges.
The central role played by Engineering in our lives extends far beyond clichéd associations with construction, heavy machinery, manufacturing and mineral extraction. Today, some of the greatest advances in engineering are being made in fields such as robotics, biomedicine and IT – areas in which King’s has particular strength.
Engineering at King’s focuses primarily on the synergies between conventional engineering and leading-edge technologies for example, between computing and telecommunications, robotics and medicine, signal processing and the digital creative media. This unique environment at King’s will enable you to develop your expertise in some of the most influential topics of our time. From exploring new technologies in 5G communication, to designing and building heart valves and other biomedical devices, to using computer vision to recognise human emotions, King’s develops engineers for the 21st century.
Our plans to grow include ongoing investment in new teaching spaces, equipment and staff which will provide a unique environment to learn and develop world-class transformational activity in engineering.
We offer a wide range of undergraduate engineering courses that will enhance your employability and lay the foundations for advanced study and research. You can choose to study Electronic Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or apply to our new undergraduate General Engineering course which starts in 2020.
At postgraduate level, our courses provide opportunities to conduct independent research and explore a huge range of specialist modules that open up a diverse range of interesting career prospects.
- Benefit from our longstanding links with various companies, including Orange, Vodafone, Nokia, NEC, Spirent, NASA and Texas Instruments.
- Learning delivered by academics who are renowned experts in their field.
- Located in central London, giving access to major libraries and leading scientific societies including the BCS Chartered Institute for IT, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and the Royal Academy of Engineering.
- Opportunities to focus on specialist topics including sustainability, physical computing, engineering mathematics, biomedical devices, electronics, mechatronics, design, artificial intelligence, robotics, and management and entrepreneurship skills.
- Frequent access to speakers of international repute through seminars and external lectures, enabling you to keep abreast of emerging knowledge.
Careers – where could your course take you?
The interface between engineering and growth technologies means that graduates from our courses are in high demand across a wide range of industries that value their specialist skills. More broadly, engineering courses develop practical, analytical and organisational skills that employers value in areas beyond engineering itself, such as finance and consulting, government and policy.
