Partnerships and international
The School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences reflects City University London's diversity in students and staff. More than half of our student body is from outside the UK including a highly international group of research students.
We offer an internationally focused learning environment with an excellent balance in the undergraduate and postgraduate student numbers with a breadth of experience and skills among our staff and students. This is primarily achieved by establishing flagship partnerships in teaching and research with appropriate high profile international organizations in countries and regions of strategic importance.
For example, the School has extensive partnership links with high profile overseas institutions engaging in a wide range of collaborative activities in undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes, CPD, joint research, student and staff mobility. These include working with key partners in China, India, Russia, Korea, USA, Hong Kong and most of the EU countries.
Nearly one third of the current strategic partnerships across the university are based on collaborative activities in the School and plans are to increase this. Such links provide students with excellent opportunities to take part in international exchange programmes, placement opportunities, joint research and other similar provisions that are becoming vitally important for 21-century graduates operating in an increasingly globalized employment marketplace.
