UCL Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering



Our research spans disciplines and crosses subjects to provide new and innovative solutions that refer back to the human and the applied. We're engineering a better world for everybody.

UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) has consistently been among the best funded such departments in the UK, with an array of researchers and groups that are leaders in their fields.

In 2011 we received £17.2m of funding from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, more than any comparable department. We are taking on the big issues that face our world, from city design, managing an ageing population and transport infrastructure, to water processing and energy and resource management. 

The research carried out within CEGE reflects a broad multidisciplinary view of the engineering world – from navigation of space shuttles and control of observation satellites, to tunnelling beneath the planet's surface – with constant reference to the human needs which drive the requirement for engineering solutions.
