Engineering and Architectural Design MEng

We're challenging the most able students to develop robust knowledge and experience of architectural, environmental and structural design and engineering in buildings.

This four-year programme has been designed in close collaboration with industry leaders, to combine the major disciplines of architecture and engineering of the built environment and prepare graduates to be future industry leaders.

The programme is run jointly with the Bartlett School of Architecture and the UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering

Placing creativity and design at the centre of engineering education, this multidisciplinary programme gives you the chance to understand and develop advanced design methodologies whilst becoming an expert in how they are augmented and resolved through engineering. 

As a student on this programme, you’ll enjoy unrivalled spaces to work in, including new facilities at Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as well as centrally located departments in Bloomsbury.

“Historically, architecture and engineering skills were indivisible – entirely symbiotic. UCL’s new venture at Here East recognises that what are now commonly regarded as separate disciplines can in fact be brought back together, under one roof, within a unified academic programme. It is hugely encouraging.Historically, architecture and engineering skills were indivisible – entirely symbiotic.

Highlights

  • Develop the skills to discover and grow your unique architectural and engineering vision
  • Imagine, evolve, simulate and test your designs, both in the Design Studio and the Lab
  • Learn how to apply advanced virtual tools and physical 3D printing to produce and test prototype designs that transform your ideas into reality
  • Master leading software tools used across the global engineering and architectural industry
  • Develop advanced leadership and communication to prepare you for a successful and rewarding career 
As technical advances impact on the design process, component production, building site construction techniques and post-occupancy evaluation, there is an ever-growing imperative for more holistic design thinking. This programme promises to deliver new professionals set to engage with these criteria to define our future built environment.

Tribal Gathering  

Our first-year Engineering & Architectural Design MEng students exhibited six innovative pavilions at UCL at Here East last March intended to explore the theme of community interaction in an event entitled Tribal Gathering
