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.


City is ideally situated for anybody wishing to start their career or progress within the engineering sector. We are situated within The City of London, a historical area of Londinium settled by the Romans in 1AD and contained inside the original city walls. It is widely viewed as the centre of London and boasts our capitals Central Business District, in addition to numerous smaller creative districts. City, University of London sits in the centre of the Clerkenwell district, famous for its wide array of industry leading design and architecture firms such as Zaha Hadid. In addition to this, we are also only a short tube ride away from some of the country's largest engineering projects (e.g. Crossrail).
