Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing

Our science, engineering and computing courses offer students the opportunity to learn and grow in a real-world environment. We'll prepare you with the skills you need to work in your chosen industry.

The Faculty is well equipped with specialist labs and equipment. Courses are created in consultation with an advisory board of key industry experts, ensuring they reflect the latest developments.

Some of our key partners include Google, GlaxoSmithKline and PlayStation First. Kingston is also one of only 12 universities in the UK to have an educational partnership with Sony.

We continuously invest in our facilities, ensuring they enable students to develop ideas, put theory into practice and use industry-standard equipment.

Our facilities include wind tunnels, a flight simulator, a Learjet plane, the Centre for Augmented and Virtual Reality Environments, geotechnical and hydraulics testing facilities and much more.

“I love that at Kingston University you never feel left alone. Even at PhD level there is a friendly environment and plenty of support available, from the supervisors to the Faculty Director.”
