Imperial is a world-leading research institution. In the Department 95% of the research was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) in 2014.
Research projects are an important aspect of our Undergraduate and MSc programmes. Projects give students an opportunity to apply knowledge gained throughout their time in the Department to current research problems, and explore their chosen research area further. They also help to develop important transferable skills such as project management, team work and communication; skills that are highly valued by employers and international research groups.
