Mechanical Engineering



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


MechSpace is a student hub for the design and build of practical projects, in London’s King’s Cross. 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 new building also serves as a Central London base for global STEM outreach organisation F1 in Schools, with whom the UCL MechEng department has collaborated for many years.

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
