UCL Engineering Exchange



The Engineering Exchange has offered a range of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses. We are also working to develop online, open-access resources.

**Please note there are no upcoming training sessions planned. If you would like to be notified when another training is scheduled, please follow this link to sign up to our newsletter.

Training will usually take place at UCL’s main campus in Bloomsbury or at a nearby location, confirmed prior to booking. Multi-day training will involve travel within London (please see Costs). 

Training is open to engineers and built environment specialists at any career level who want to gain skills in working with communities or increase their research impact through community engagement. Although not an entry requirement, the training may be particularly useful for engineers working towards Chartered Engineer (CEng); Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (EngTech) qualification (UKSpec E-group competences)

The courses do not include assessment, although feedback will be available for individual projects. Participants will be awarded a certificate of completion. 

Participants will have access to wifi for the duration of the training. Morning coffee and lunch are also included; please contact the organisers with dietary preferences.

Please see individual course listings below for information about structure, contact hours and staff qualifications.


Training is charged at £300 per day. A 15% discount is available when registering 3 or more participants. Further discounts may be available; please see individual course listings. Participants will receive a full refund if they cancel their place a week or more in advance of the start of the training. If they cancel after this point they will receive a 50% discount. 

UCL students can attend the training for free, but will be asked to pay a refundable retaining fee to reserve their place; non UCL students receive a 25% discount. Please note you will be asked to show a valid student id. You can contact us for further details.

All participants are required to pay for their own travel. The cost of this will not exceed a TfL Travelcard day pass (for one-day training) or week pass (for multi-day training).
