UCL Engineering

UCL Engineering works to turn concepts and ideas into solution

UCL Engineering is home to the country’s leading computer scientists and engineers, and supports the programme with technical mentorship and commercialisation.

In 1827, UCL founded the first laboratory in the world devoted to engineering education. Over 190 years later, we are still at the cutting edge of the discipline, home to some of the most successful engineering departments in the UK

Many essential technologies originated from studies and work at UCL, including the rapid production of vaccines, fibre-optic communications (for which a share of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded) and the Internet infrastructure. The complexity of today’s societies means that engineers deal with an incredible range of challenges, ideas and techniques.


The Engineering Faculty is uniquely international, reflecting UCL’s global outlook. Our students and staff join us from over 120 nations across Europe, the Americas, Africa, India, China, the Middle and Far East, and Australasia – as do our academic and business partners. We have a partnership with Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan. But we also recognise our home in London, one of the world’s great cities, and believe in contributing to our local communities and young people.

Engineers create new ideas, blend them with existing ones, and turn them into products and services. They meet the needs of the world. They change the world."
