Picture of the Week
Discovering the physics and chemistry of the cosmos is different to carrying out experiments in the lab. In the lab, samples can be tested, experiments can be repeated, and if anything looks odd, you can always look from another angle to see if it's just a trick of perspective. For astronomers, none of this is possible: the only information they have is in the light that reaches their telescopes. More...
About the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences
The Faculty is part of the BEAMS School which comprises the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment, the Faculty of Engineering Sciences and MAPS.
Encompassing the logical, experimental and mathematical study of our
universe, Mathematical and Physical Sciences at UCL consists of
departments highly rated for research excellence. The faculty also
provides a base for a number of research centres: these facilitate
in-depth and interdisciplinary research through collaboration between
experts within MAPS, and in related areas in Engineering Sciences and
Life Sciences. In addition, the
Faculty has its own interdepartmental degree programme: Natural Sciences.
Front-line research feeds directly into our teaching programmes, and our students benefit from access to first-class laboratory facilities. All MAPS departments are involved in teaching. The faculty offers an array of three-year BSc and four-year Masters-level MSci degrees in emerging as well as more traditional academic areas.
For graduate students, the faculty offers programmes ranging from one-year taught MSc degrees, through MRes (research masters) to 3/4 year PhD and EngD doctoral research degrees.
