Support while studying

At UCL we take pastoral support just as seriously as academic matters. If you are experiencing problems that are adversely affecting your engagement at UCL, there are a number of people within the university who you can turn to for help.

Faculty for Engineering Sciences

The Faculty of Engineering Sciences is one of eight faculties at UCL. The Faculty's academic departments undertake research and training across a great range of disciplines. We hope that through these web pages you will find out more about our internationally renowned research and explore our leading programmes of study which attract students from across the world.

Chemical Engineering

Chemical engineers apply scientific and technological expertise to develop processes which alter the chemical, physical, or biochemical state of materials. With an emphasis on saftey, sustainability and cost-effectiveness, as a chemical engineer your skills will be in demand worldwide for the manufacture of essential products.
To read more about Chemical Engineering go to the UCL Departmental Website.

Biochemical Engineering and Bioprocessing

The contributions made by biochemical engineering to human well-being are having a vital positive impact in developing novel medicines, pioneering stem cell therapies and sustainable green technologies. Studying this subject opens up a world of innovation in which exciting discoveries are translated into practical processes.
To read more go to the Departmental Website for Biochemical Engineering.

Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering

From the design and execution of large infrastructure projects to the development of solutions which halt and repair damage to our environment, from bathymetric charting to predicting satellite orbits, CEGE are exciting and truly international disciplines which impact on millions of lives and employ people in projects all around the world. To learn more visit the CEGE departmental website.

Computer Science

Computer systems underlie most activities we consider vital to daily life in the C21st. With relevance to commerce , science and government, as well as to communications and entertainment, studying computer science develops analytical thinking and creative problem-solving skills, important for a challenging and fulfilling career.
To find out what Computer Science Studies offer go to the CS departmental website.

Electronic & Electrical Engineering

The impact of developments in electronic engineering has been huge - from life-saving medical equipment to mobile phones. The pace of change is rapid and exciting, with new technologies emerging continually, providing huge scope to apply your technical skills and ingenuity to benefit society.
