Dyson School of Design Engineering
About Us/Study With Us/Twitter
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 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 few 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 Head of School is Professor Peter Childs.

An introduction to Design Engineering
Design engineers are problem solvers who bridge the gap between traditional engineering and design to create innovative solutions to modern challenges, from improving passenger comfort on commercial airlines to designing next-generation sports prostheses.
It's a highly creative discipline that draws on knowledge of manufacturing techniques, product development, technical design and rapid prototyping to bring new innocations to market, and to improve existing products and the processes used for making them.
