Some of the most interesting and ground-breaking research we create does not sit comfortably in a single discipline. It exists at the interfaces between fields, drawing on expertise from a number of areas. Of course the same can be said for engineering jobs.
To give students a distinctive edge after graduation and capitalising on UCL’s strengths in various research areas, all students study an IEP Minor option as part of their degree. Most IEP Minors are either topics from disciplines complementary to engineering, or interdisciplinary subjects based on our research strengths, taught by cross-disciplinary teams. Some infact are skills-based to give students breadth in their expertise as engineering graduates.
Find out more about the IEP Minors and the IEP Minors Fair from IEP Director Emanuela Tilley.
Further information on the IEP Minors can be found at: http://www.engineering.ucl.ac.uk/current-students/minors
IEP Minors are selected in the first year and taught across the second and third years (three modules equalling 45 credits in total). Students complete a poll giving the Faculty an indication of their first and second IEP Minor choices during Term 2 of Year 1, and then go on to confirm their final choice at the start of their second year during the UCL Module Selection process.
