Kingston University is based in a vibrant town on the River Thames just 20 minutes by train from Central London. Kingston itself is a safe, leafy, London suburb with plenty of cafés, bars and shops – plus sprawling parks and historical Hampton Court Palace.
Kingston University offers a diverse range of undergraduate, masters and research opportunities in engineering – from aerospace, space technology, motorsport and automotive engineering – to construction, surveying, civil and mechanical engineering. Courses are developed with industry partners and accredited by key professional institutions to ensure they meet business needs – whilst our research active academic staff ensure lessons include latest developments.
Our labs are packed with industry standard software and equipment, plus we have some more unique facilities too – including largescale wind tunnels, a microgravity droptower and a rocket engine propulsion lab. What’s more, those joining us have the chance to join student projects like the KU e-Racing team who have designed and built an electric car for the international Formula Student competition – and an electric bike for the Zero TT. Both have had significant success – with the Bike smashing the UK land speed record for an electric bike by over 40mph – hitting 160mph and finishing 3rd in the Zero TT, whilst the team finished top of the UK electric car teams in the Formula Student competition. Projects like these provide you with the chance to put theory into practice, develop team working and project management skills – and add industry experience to your CV.
We provide support for you throughout your time with us – from application to enrolment and throughout your studies. We have a range of undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships to help with your fees, a dedicated team to pick you up from the airport and help you settle in – plus personal tutors to guide you through your studies and advisors should you need more specialised advice.
