Discover our postgraduate programmes with a commitment to Sustainable Engineering

As we face environmental challenges and the need for a greener future, the role of engineering in achieving sustainability cannot be underestimated.

UCL Engineering is home to 10 departments with a stake in the sustainability game. We take a multi- and interdisciplinary perspective to the field - Mechanical, Chemical, Electronic and Electrical, Biomedical Engineers, Computer Sciences, Business and Responsible Finance experts (and more!) come together at UCL Engineering to progress research with sustainability in mind.

At UCL Engineering, we understand that tomorrow's engineers will need to use innovative technologies and techniques to promote sustainable practice. This is why we embed sustainability in all our teaching, and we boast a range of MSc, MRes and MPA programmes that focus specifically on sustainable engineering.
