Industry engagement

Collaborative projects often emerge from contact between academics or researchers and practitioners working in the Engineering profession

If you have a project you would like to discuss with us we would welcome the chance to talk it through with you. However, we also have several established programmes that you can participate in:

Consultancy

UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) is involved in a wide range of consultancy projects. We work with organisations in the public or the private sector, in the UK and overseas, with government organisations, multinationals, or small companies. Projects can be long-term collaborations, or focused on specific deliverables over a short time frame.

Consultancy with the department can involve many forms, including subject matter expertise, expert witness work, strategic advice, policy briefings, feasibility and scoping studies. We work in close collaboration with UCL Consultants Ltd, which provides legal and contractual support and handles the financial aspects of consultancy.

Contact our Director of Enterprise for more information and to discuss your consultancy requirements.

Outreach

We have an outstanding reputation for outreach, making research accessible to different stakeholders and inspiring the next generation of engineers. We engage in a diverse range of events including student taster days, engineering summer schools, media stories and interviews, museum exhibitions, online educational games and learning materials.

We offer residential courses such as Headstart that allow students to get a taste of what our undergraduates do over the course of our popular scenario-based learning. We also strive to involve industry partners in both the design and delivery of our outreach activities to give a flavour of engineering career paths. Due to the nature of the department, we have been particularly successful in promoting diversity in engineering and in setting up outreach activities with a global reach.

Contact our Director of Enterprise for more information.

Placements

We are always keen to support people looking to give students work experience or internships. Contact us if you would like help in identifying the right student to work with you.
