The school teaches a four-year Master of Engineering degree in Design Engineering. The curriculum, designed in partnership with Dyson engineers to ensure industry relevance, blends technical discipline with creativity. It challenges students to develop tangible and compelling products, as well as giving them the commercial know-how to make the products a commercial success.
AN ICONIC LOCATION
From 2017, the Dyson School will be housed in a building bought by Imperial from the Science Museum. Flanked by the Science Museum and Imperial College London’s main campus, it's in the heart of London's South Kensington. Within just 100 metres are the Victoria and Albert and Natural History Museums, putting the Dyson School of Design Engineering in one of the world’s most visited cultural destinations.
BRIDGING THE GENDER DIVIDE
On average, only 12.9% of applicants to engineering courses are female. By championing creativity as well as theory, the Dyson School of Design Engineering attracts a much higher percentage of females. In the first year of operation, 48% of all students at the Dyson School were female.
