Mechanical Engineering



UCL Mechanical Engineering has state of the art facilities to help you make the most of studying with us.


MechSpace is a student hub in London’s King’s Cross for designing and building practical projects. The facility spans six levels, with some 12,000 square feet of space and an array of well-equipped workshops and study spaces: this is a space where students can unleash their creativity to its fullest. 

The building also serves as a Central London base for the global STEM outreach organisation F1 in Schools, which UCL Mechanical Engineering has collaborated with for several years

The Institute of Making 

The Institute of Making (IoM) is a multidisciplinary research club for those interested in the made world. Materials may be purchased independently, however, the use of most equipment within the Institute is free of charge to you as a UCL student.

As a mechanical engineering student, you will find the Institute of Making’s facilities useful to complete some practical projects

To book an induction, visit the IoM website and register.


MechSpace is a dedicated facility for mechanical engineering students to design and build prototypes and hone practical skills. Watch the video below for a glimpse inside.
