UCL Centre for Systems Engineering

Established in 1998, the UCL Centre for Systems Engineering (UCLse) is a centre of excellence for systems engineering and the management of technology projects.

UCLse's founding aim was to share the knowledge and skills developed by the Mullard Space Science Laboratory from over two hundred successful rocket and space missions completed over the last fifty years with systems engineers in other sectors.
