Our Faculty offers some of the best and most accessible courses in engineering, science and the built environment available in London. The high quality of our industry links, employer engagement and specialist research are just some of the many ways we enhance our student experience. We continually build on over a century of expertise to ensure our courses are highly relevant to today's careers market.
Our academic activity is conducted across four departments:
We represent the proud traditions of our parent institutions, including the Borough Polytechnic, the Brixton School of Building and the National College of Heating, Ventilating, Refrigeration and Fan Engineering. Because of them we can boast that today we offer a diverse range of science, engineering, technology and architecture education that spans over a century of experience.

The diversity of our academic disciplines enables the Faculty to develop and deliver novel multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary educational experiences to our students.
Our excellent links with industry, commerce and the professions mean the Faculty is exceptionally well equipped to offer our students so much with their studies. We are the key driver for the University's research and enterprise activities, as well as its partnerships with local community and other institutions.
We aim to be the first choice destination for industry-relevant education, informed by excellent applied research and educational experience.
We will realise this by working in partnership with our stakeholders, providing pathways which enable students from diverse backgrounds to achieve their full potential.
We aim to create an environment that is challenging and supportive, enhanced by our superior range of equipment and facilities. The success of our approach is underlined by the fact that our record of graduate employment is among the highest in the country. Our graduates are greatly valued by employers and our alumni hold a range of senior positions in business and the public sector, both at home and overseas.
It's our aim to provide top quality teaching and learning and underpin it with relevant, targeted research and scholarship that focuses on areas of existing and potential excellence. We deliver our courses in an environment and style that meets our students' needs. All processes relating to courses, students and staff are subject to continual review and improvement.
We aim to be at the forefront of education and development in knowledge enhancement and practice for the fields of applied sciences, infrastructure engineering and the built environment. We also want to enable students to access a distinctive learning experience that fosters their confidence and professionalism.
We will do this by innovating curriculum development and delivery underpinned by applied research in partnership with employers and users of programmes and services.
