Queen Mary is a major international research university, which is part of the world-famous University of London. The campus is situated in a historic, vibrant and multicultural part of London.
In the National Student Survey of 2011 the School of Engineering and Materials performed exceptionally well:
-Department of Materials, #1 in UK
-Department of Aerospace Engineering, #2 in UK
-Department of Mechanical Engineering, #5 in UK
The School of Engineering and Materials was formed in January 2007, combining the expertise of academics in both Engineering and Materials departments. Our postgraduate degrees are designed to equip you with the skills for a wide range of careers. The engineering and scientific skills you gain are highly valued by employers in all sectors of industry and academia.
The School of Engineering and Materials has excellent laboratories to facilitate both research and learning. The aeronautical lab has a large number of low and high speed wind tunnels used for teaching and research. Recently we acquired an advanced facility for teaching and research for flight simulation and control. The department has a strong research tradition in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in general and in particular in aerodynamics and acoustics. The computational labs are well-equipped with desktops and workstations. This is supplemented by our medium size computing clusters and advanced large scale cluster.
