The Kingston Laboratory is an interdisciplinary research laboratory that explores the intersection of engineering and science.
The combination of science and engineering gives new concepts, understanding, and rigor from science, and stimuli to challenging and important problems from engineering, as well as the depth of engineering techniques that make advanced scientific experiments possible.
The interdisciplinary environment provides well-educated and intellectually flexible graduates with adequate preparation to adapt to the evolving modern workplace and provides an opportunity for true knowledge entrepreneurs to combine the best ideas and technologies from different fields to make new inventions and advances.
The powerful opportunities come from the overlap of three science and engineering fields -- quantum science and engineering, photonic science and engineering, and nanoscience and engineering. These are embedded in an environment that encourages and explores applications in other fields such as sensing, communications, information processing, biology and medicine, energy, and the environment.
