Picture of the Week
The picture represents a "finite energy foliation" of the 3-dimensional manifold S1 x S2 with its standard contact structure. Finite energy foliations are ways of filling 3-dimensional space with smooth surfaces that are solutions to a differential equation arising in string theory. More...
The Faculty is part of the BEAMS School which comprises the Faculties of the Bartlett, 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 16 MSc degree programmes, as well as three MRes (research masters) programmes in Modelling Biological Complexity, Systems Biology and Molecular Modelling and Materials Science. These provide excellent preparation for the wide range of doctoral research degrees (PhD and EngD) available.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate degree programmes available within the MAPS Faculty are located here.
