About the Department
University College London (UCL) was a founding laboratory of the discipline of Biochemical Engineering, established the first UK Department, and is the largest international centre for teaching and research. It is part of one of the world's great institutions of learning and research. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise 75% of Academic Staff were rated as "World Leading" or "Internationally Excellent".
The Department's research activity is internationally renowned and embraces five major global themes; the achievement of speed from discovery to outcome, the harnessing of genomics, addressing the new generation of complex materials, making the outcomes affordable and achieving sustainability. Many of our research projects are in collaboration with industry and all address strategically significant issues.
The Department provides education and training for undergraduates, postgraduates, industry professionals, and offers information and training for teachers and schools including active involvement with students ahead of university through the Royal Academy of Engineering Headstart Course, Nuffield Foundation Science Bursaries and the Smallpeice Trust. Located in the heart of London we welcome visits from schools, potential students and research collaborators.
