About the faculty
The Faculty of Science and Technology is located in the heart of London, and provides a supportive and enriching educational environment for all students, enabling you to reach your full potential and to prepare you for professional life. The Faculty offers a broad range of courses across the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects, and is divided into five academic departments – Biomedical Sciences, Computing, Engineering, Life Sciences and Psychology – each staffed by supportive and experienced academics.
Our high-quality teaching is informed by our internationally recognised research, which encompasses a wide range of disciplines. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise a proportion of the research outputs in all subject areas were judged to be at world-leading and internationally excellent levels.
Our teaching is also underpinned by our wide-ranging links to industry and professional bodies, with most of our courses offering some form of professional recognition which may lead to professional membership on graduation.
The range of bodies which accredit or recognise our courses includes: Association for Nutrition; British Acupuncture Council; British Computer Society; British Psychological Society; Engineering Council; European Herbal and Traditional Medicine Practitioners Association; Health and Care Professions Council; Institute of Biomedical Sciences; Institution of Engineering and Technology.
Our diversity and multi-disciplinary culture gives students exposure to a wide-reaching science community, creating a friendly and inspiring place to study. All of our departments are based at Cavendish Campus which has undergone an extensive multi-million pound programme of renovation, and continuous investment in our facilities means we can offer all students access to state-of-the-art laboratories.
These facilities will equip you with the technical know-how for your future career, and all our courses have a strong emphasis on developing and using your practical skills.
Significant numbers of our students also continue into further study.
