Design Engineering

Design Engineering is the fusion of design thinking, and engineering knowledge and practice within a culture of innovation and enterprise.

Welcome to the Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial College London.

The Dyson School of Design Engineering is the 10th and newest engineering department at Imperial College London. It was formed in July 2014, building on the long-standing design and engineering expertise at Imperial as well as the world-renowned Innovation Design Engineering (IDE) programme run jointly by Imperial and the Royal College of Art. The Head of School is Professor Peter Childs.

The School has a fast growing population of both staff and students, including fractional staff actively working in industry. The School expects to grow by 100 people a year for the next four years and is currently located in 10 Princes Gardens, South Kensington, prior to moving into the Dyson Building on Exhibition Road in September 2017.

The School offers an undergraduate MEng in Design Engineering, two double masters run jointly with the Royal College of Art in Innovation Design Engineering and Global Innovation Design, and postgraduate research.

Prospective students are welcome to attend one of Imperial's undergraduate open days or postgraduate open days to find out more about the programmes offered.
