Engineering was part of the foundations of City University London as an education institution in 1894 and remains at the core of the University today.
As a result, we are able to draw on over 100 years of experience in the subject to continue a longstanding tradition of academic excellence in engineering. City’s current engineering departments – Civil Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering & Aeronautics – boast cutting-edge facilities; dedicated, research-active staff; a culture of collaboration and strong links with industry. City is ideally situated for engineering, surrounded by a host of design companies in Clerkenwell in the heart of a city that is at the forefront of the construction industry. We offer courses at undergraduate, postgraduate, research and foundation levels, and our research has a positive impact on the world we live in.

A degree from City University London helped open doors for Paul.
When visiting City after having received an offer, I immediately felt welcome. The atmosphere was very warm and friendly.
Abdullah chose City for the vibrant London location.
"City's academic staff are experienced professionals. Experts in their field delivering quality lectures."
City's multidisciplinary approach to research is based around an integration of applied research, research in generic technologies and fundamental research. Key areas of applied research are energy, environment, transportation, construction, engineering systems management, biomedical processes and cyber and physical security systems. These are supported by research into the generic technologies of optical instrumentation, sensors and communications. Fundamental research in complex systems, control theory and computational fluid dynamics underpins these activities.
