What Is Engineering? – New Videos From UCL

12 May 2014

What does being an engineer mean? And how can they learn to do it? We’ve made some new videos to explain what we think engineering is, and how we’ve changed our teaching to develop our vision of the modern engineer.

What is engineering?

A selection of the UCL Engineering community – students, staff, alumni, and more – explain what they’re working on, and why…

Science explores the world. Engineering changes it.

Why study engineering at UCL?

This year, UCL Engineering has been working on bringing together the excellent and innovative teaching in the faculty to refresh our courses. Our new modules prepare students for engineering as it is done in the world: working with other disciplines, in teams, on big, relevant challenges, and learning solid transferrable skills in maths and communications. Here, we explain what’s different about studying at UCL Engineering, what students will get to do, and why we think it’s time to make these changes.

If these ideas interest you, visit the UCL Engineering undergraduate study pages to find out more about studying at UCL Engineering – or if you’re not at that stage yet, visit the UCL Prospective Students pages to find out how you can get a taster of any of the subjects UCL offers.
