Home: Welcome
Join the Surgical & Interventional Engineering CDT at King's 

Interested in making a difference to healthcare?


Our CDT in Surgical & Interventional Engineering is an innovative three-and-a-half year program in the heart of London. We bring together a world-class multidisciplinary team to deliver translational research and transform patient pathways. 


Our research portfolio focuses on three major themes:

1. Smart Instruments and Implants

2. Computer-Assisted Interventions

3. Computational Surgical Modelling

Led by the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences at King's and fully embedded into Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, this unique PhD programme aims to combine expertise from across different fields and organisations to innovate in the surgical and interventional field.

The research training offered by the CDT will equip students with the necessary skills to pursue research careers in industry and academia. The transferable skills developed during the programme also make our students suitable for careers in policy, the NHS, and government bodies. We aim to showcase the different set of opportunities through invited seminars and networking activities throughout the programme. 



Please note there are several other funded opportunities for Doctoral Studies in our School. Find out more.
