Cybersecurity is a global challenge that impacts societies, national security, critical infrastructure and the global economy

Embracing the synergy of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches, Kingston University’s Faculty of Engineering, Computing and the Environment and Cyber and Digital Innovation Hub are working toward a transformational shift in the realm of cyber, AI methods of learning design, and design thinking culture. The collaboration successfully challenges conventional norms by integrating social and environmental considerations into the fabric of AI, cyber and digital subject domains in computing and design. This shift in perspective opens new horizons for designers applied to the research approach, redefining researcher roles and responsibilities from a systems perspective in an increasingly digitally-focussed human and machine hybrid active era.

Cybernetic thinking applied as a basis for a constructionist methodology informs the development of circularity by observing cause and effect through participant insights and feedback mechanisms. Integrating these skill sets and knowledge into our Faculty of Engineering, Computing and the Environment has helped the design of learning, and build on our reputation for innovative feedback in industry, with close relationships supporting colleagues across national and international boundaries.

The Cyber Centre of Excellence is focused on establishing nationally recognised standards of excellence in cyber security education with government and other academic institutions. Building on a GCHQ-certified master’s programme and a strong research base, the Centre will deliver a state-of-the-art cyber security education environment specialising in live threats intelligence simulations and establishing long-term proactive partnerships with industry, Government, and local communities to change the cybersecurity culture.
