We have a dedicated campus for our aerospace, aircraft and mechanical engineering courses at Roehampton Vale, on the outskirts of Kingston town center and close to Richmond Park. Collaboration between academia and industry is integral to study at Kingston, and the delivery of courses is supported by the Industry Advisory Board and other professional bodies.

If there's one thing we stand for above all else at Kingston University's School of Engineering and the Environment, it's active, problem-based learning. In short, making sure our students leave us ready for the challenges of the 21st century.

Our challenging curricula and outstanding facilities combine across two campuses to deliver undergraduate, postgraduate and research opportunities in civil engineering and construction, aerospace and aircraft engineering and mechanical and automotive engineering.
