At UCL Mechanical Engineering we treasure our alumni. We are, of course, proud of the many roles our former students play in the wider world, from cutting edge racing technology to the world of business.

Alumni also play key roles in the life of the department. Several are counted amongst our academic staff while others:

  • donate time to mentor current students
  • financially support current students with bursaries
  • contribute real world experience to teaching and research
