Engineering with Innovation & Entrepreneurship
Duration: Full time for 12 months.
Start Date: Late September each year.
Entry: A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university in engineering, physics or mathematics, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.
All candidates must satisfy UCL's English language requirements.
This new degree programme is designed to equip graduates with a first degree in a relevant numerate subject with the technical, managerial and entrepreneurial skills and knowledge required to develop innovative engineering products and solutions and turn them into financial advantage.
What will I learn?
The programme combines a first-rate engineering education in areas that arekey to developing new technologies (namely advanced materials, renewable energy and biomedical engineering) with courses on project management and entrepreneurship necessary to equip students with the fundamentals and skills required to manage innovation. Students undertake a group and an individual project with a focus on innovation.
|The MSc Engineering with Innovation & Entrepreneurship has provisional accreditation by the IMechE as meeting the further learning requirements, in full, for registration as a Chartered Engineer for the 2013 student cohort intake.|

All students undertake an individual research project
which culminates in a report and oral presentation. In many cases the work has
some input from industry.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, laboratory and project work, workshops and problem classes. Assessment is through examinations, coursework, lab reports, presentations, the group design project and the individual research project.
The choice of modules maybe constrained by availability and timetabling.

Why should I study this degree at UCL?
The UCL Department of Mechanical Engineering is a dynamic and vibrant place to study and do research. Located in Central London it was the first mechanical engineering department in the UK. It has a long reputation for internationally leading research funded by numerous organisations and industry and quality teaching.
The Department benefits from state of the art facilities and close links with industry and has access to expertise in other disciplines, including engineering and management sciences within UCL.
Graduates of this new programme will be well placed to
understand new technologies, develop and use their creativity to identify needs
and opportunities and come up with innovative solutions, thus preparing them
for successful careers in today's competitive, technology and knowledge-based
The first cohort of students on the Engineering with Innovation and Entrepreneurship MSc are due to graduate in 2014. Therefore no information about career destinations is currently available.
