Renowned for both its teaching and research, the Department's aim is to address the world's most pressing challenges with science and technology.

The Regius Chair has a unique history. On stepping down as Chancellor of the University of Cambridge in 2011, His Late Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh requested that a Regius Professorship of Engineering be created to mark the event in perpetuity. It is the most prestigious chair in the Department of Engineering. The first holder was the late Professor Sir David MacKay who was elected when he returned to full-time academic work after a period as Chief Scientific Advisor to the Department of Energy and Climate Change. In the relatively short period before his untimely death in 2016 he had a remarkable and enduring impact on both the undergraduate teaching and the research in his areas of interest.
