UCL Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering as a distinct discipline in the UK was established right here at UCL in 1847. Today, our students are taught core engineering disciplines and supervised in individual and group research projects by academics, many of whom are recognised research world-leaders in their fields.
How does Engineering allow us to see our bodies in microscale?
Hierarchical Phase-Contrast Tomography (HiP-CT) allows us to see inside whole human organs down to the cellular level.
This new technique was co-developed by Professor Peter Lee and Dr Claire Walsh of UCL Mechanical Engineering, alongside colleagues from ESRF and with the support of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative is being used in a variety of ways including helping us to understand the causes of long COVID.
