Faculty of Engineering, Computing and the Environment

The Faculty of Engineering, Computing and the Environment was formed in 2022. Its schools bring together interdisciplinary research, improving the scope of the student experience and encouraging partnerships between academia and commerce.

Through a collaborative approach, the Faculty offers greater access to resources, knowledge and information and a broader perspective on its subjects, with teaching and research staff working more closely with their colleagues in other disciplines.

Changes being made from 1 August 2022

Kingston University will be making some changes to the structure of this Faculty from 1 August 2022.

Courses in the current Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing will be delivered in two new Faculties:

  • the Faculty of Health, Science, Social Care and Education, which will bring together the School of Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry, currently based in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing, with the School of Nursing and School of Education, Midwifery and Social Work, currently in the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education.
  • the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and the Environment, made up of the School of Engineering and the Environment and the School of Computer Science and Mathematics, both at the moment forming the remainder of the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing.

Teaching on undergraduate and postgraduate courses currently delivered by the Faculty will continue as usual and students should notice very little change on a practical level.
