"Why did I study Biochemical Engineering at UCL?" Associate Professor and graduate from the department, Dr Qasim Rafiq, talks about why he chose to study here with current students. This was recorded in August 2020 and includes a Q&A session.

UCL Department of Biochemical Engineering was the first of its kind in the UK, now with teaching and research taking place in The Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering.
