UCL Mechanical Engineering is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and to creating an environment that is inclusive, fair, respectful and equal.
We wish to foster a positive cultural climate where all staff and students can flourish, where no-one will feel compelled to conceal or play down elements of their identity for fear of stigma.
We are part of a faculty-wide and University-wide plan to implement an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Strategy.

UCL Student Society of Women Engineers
Founded in 2013, the UCL Student Society of Women Engineers aims to create a meaningful community body of women in all fields of engineering – at postgraduate and undergraduate level.
Membership is £5 per academic year and gives members access to all events. Members get the chance to win sponsorship to external events.
The society organises:
- Opportunities for networking
- Professional development
It also encourages participation in outreach activities, inviting women from academia, industry or other backgrounds to speak to members.
