The UCL Energy Institute aims to train highly emplyable graduates who are equipped with the skills, knowledge and professional values required by employers to become leaders and enterpreneurs in their chosen field.
Leadership, communication, teamwork, language and business skills are refined in the high-quality multi-disciplinary research environment through our taught programmes, workshops, internal and external seminars and access to networking opportunities with research staff within the institute and across UCL along with external partners fron industry, policy, government and business.
Why study this degree at UCL?
Most energy problems are multi-disciplinary in nature, spanning science, engineering and the social sciences and therefore different approaches are needed to understand and tackle these issues. At UCL-Energy, we are developing a range of tools, models and methods that are required to address the energy challenge over the next two decades. We believe that all processes need to be developed in parallel and that interaction between different systems, disciplines and methods is essential.
The UCL Energy Institute's core research focuses on six main areas: buildings, energy systems, people and energy, policy and law, smart energy and transport. The institute additionally acts as an umbrella for energy-related research at UCL, bringing together leading researchers on different topics. The multi-disciplinary approach of UCL-Energy is at the heart of its success.

"I established contacts with many researchers at UCL and with people outside the university through the various seminar series held at my institute, and most importantly through presenting my research at conferences in various parts of the world."
Fabian KesickiSubject: Energy Institute PhD
"I really like the flat management structure of UCL Energy – research staff are approachable and interested, despite being so busy. I have attended several national and international conferences in Exeter, Edinburgh, Cape Town and Rome. I also attended a PhD summer school in Italy."
