Engineering was part of the foundations of City, University of London as an education institution in 1894 and remains at the core of City 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.
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.
We're situated in an enviable central London location, on the doorstep of the design hub of the UK (Clerkenwell) and close to some of the country's largest engineering projects (e.g. Crossrail).
