King’s College London

Founded in 1829, King’s College London is a research-intensive university with a rich tradition of inter-disciplinary research and innovation.

We have world class research strengths across the natural, mathematical and engineering sciences as well as the health and life sciences, and an active focus on novel discovery and applied science and translational activity at the convergence points of these areas. King’s Engineering also brings together activities from the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences, the Department of Engineering and the Plus Alliance for the development of engineering as a key strategic priority with a shared overarching vision, to support delivery across the three constituent units for the benefit of humankind and the planet.     

King’s has enjoyed great success in securing funding to generate knowledge and impact as part of major thematic challenges and missions set by government and strategic public funders in areas such as advanced therapeutics, robotics, smart manufacturing, 5G technologies, imaging science and biomedical engineering. In August 2021, King’s launched a new Centre for 6G Research, an exciting collaboration with the University of Bristol as joint pioneers of next generation mobile networks.

Collaboration is intrinsic to this, and King’s prides itself on its broad base of partnerships with other universities in London and the south. Notable examples of this include our collaborations with UCL and Imperial in The London Medical Imaging & AI Centre for Value Based Healthcare and The London Centre for Nanotechnology.

King’s is proud to be part of King’s Health Partners, a leading academic health science centre, as well as key national hub initiatives such as the Francis Crick Institute, the Rosalind Franklin Institute and the UK Dementia Research Institute.
