UCL Mechanical Engineering

175 years pioneering in the development of engineering education, the first Mechanical Engineering Department in England and the first in the world to introduce laboratories in engineering education – welcome to 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.
