Mechanical Engineering



Studying how physical bodies move, bend, flow, strain, heat, burn, and generally work together, mechanical engineers create, and have input into, thousands of products and processes – from artificial heart valves to container ships, power stations to future vehicles and renewable fuels.


Some reasons to study Mechanical Engineering at UCL…

The course content draws on the department’s diverse research interests – with strengths in energy, biomechanical engineering, and naval architecture. This allows students to apply their knowledge of fundamental theory to many different topics. In addition to our mechanical engineering programme, students have the option to study engineering with business finance. This programme puts the development of critical future technologies in the context of the business environment.


In the Department

UCL MakeSpace

Part of the Institute of Making, a group of researchers devoted to exploring the properties and experience of materials, craft and construction, UCL MakeSpace is an open-access workshop where all UCL staff and students, regardless of their subject, can come and work on projects. With a laser cutter, 3D printed, lathe, kiln, and hundreds of hand tools, as well as the Materials Library, the resources here enable students to bring their studies to life, as well as pursuing personal projects.
