            I had the great opportunity of studying at the Strand campus right in the centre of London with Waterloo over the bridge and Trafalger Square nearby - it is a very inspiring backdrop in which to study. Although the Engineering division has now been absorbed into the Natural & Mathematical Sciences department. It was innovative with leading edge teaching and research into Robotics, Dynamical Systems and 3D printing. The global reputation of King's College is immense and serves well to its graduates - me included.
