Exclusively for Members and their guests

An exclusive tour of the Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial with its founder.


Professor Peter Childs, Chair and Leader in Engineering Design, founding Head of the Dyson School of Design Engineering, Imperial College London.


The Dyson School of Design Engineering is the 10th and newest engineering department at Imperial College London. It was founded in 2014 and assisted by a generous donation from the James Dyson Foundation.  Their goal is to fuse together design thinking, engineering knowledge and practice, to foster a culture of innovation and enterprise, to help solve global problems with emphasis on sustainability, entrepreneurship and societal impact.

This Members-exclusive visit consists of a welcome and introduction by our host, Professor Childs. He will then lead a ‘walk and talk’ through the various research areas and laboratories, principal school teaching and facilities. The event will end with networking and refreshments.
