The Foundations for STEaPP: BEAMS and UCL
As a UCL Department, STEaPP will organisationally and physically sit within the
Faculty of Engineering. However the intellectual and financial foundations for STEaPP are equally rooted within all three of the world-class Faculties comprising the BEAMS School (the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment; the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences; and the Faculty of Engineering), and strong connections are being forged with the policy, laws and social science expertise across UCL's other Faculties.
More broadly, STEaPP draws upon UCL’s longstanding tradition of dual-commitment to academic excellence and public service. Pan-university initiatives such as UCL Public Policy, UCL Enterprise and UCL Grand Challenges are current manifestations of the public service orientation that complement and build upon UCL’s world-class academic research and teaching. STEaPP and the related cross-Faculty Institute will benefit strongly from collaborative interactions with these and other programmes, along with the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship nurtured by UCL’s leadership.
London has long been a global capital and intellectual thoroughfare. As London's global university, with globally recognised excellence in science, engineering, laws, politics and social science, UCL is uniquely situated to launch and sustain the ambitious endeavour of STEaPP.
