    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.
