UCL Engineering

UCL Engineering, the faculty that changes the world .

UCL Engineering continues to support the Enterprise Society in bringing high quality events to the student population. Without their incredible support, TEDxUCL would not be taking place.

The faculty provides research and teaching that turn fundamental scientific discoveries into things the world’s never seen before. The faculty encompasses nine departments, covering a wide variety of topics:

  • Biochemical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electronic and Electrical Engineering
  • Management Science and Innovation
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Medical Physics and Bioengineering
  • Security and Crime Science

UCL Engineering educates an incredibly diverse range of students, with two thirds of all UCL students on overseas exchanges in the faculty. With teaching programmes that are focused on subjects that have the biggest impact on the world around us, and research projects ranging from  regenerative medicine to sign language and fuel cell technologies, it is little wonder that the faculty  is so capable of producing the solutions that the world needs.

UCL Business

 

To help support and commercialise UCL research for the benefit of humankind in its widest sense.

For the second year in a row, UCL Business is generously supporting the Enterprise Society in holding the prestigious TEDxUCL event on the Bloomsbury campus. Thanks to their support, last year’s event was an enormous success. We have no doubt that given their continued involvement, this year’s series of talks will be no less enjoyable, astounding and inspirational.

UCLB has been formed to help industry and business make the most of UCL innovations. Through licensing technologies & innovations, engaging consultancy services, creating shared-risk joint-venture businesses, and utilising UCL’s specialist Subsidiaries, UCLB promotes and supports the transfer into industry of expertise and knowledge over a wide range of disciplines.

To do this, UCLB engages in a range of activities that overlap with the goals of the Enterprise Society, strengthening the partnership between the two parties. UCLB:

  • Identifies promising new technologies and innovations.
  • Promotes UCL expertise and innovations worldwide.
  • Offers a single point of contact for business relations with UCL.
  • Provides responsive, professional and coherent support for academic/business collaborations, from consultancy through to patent registration, technology licensing and structuring spin-out companies.

UCL Enterprise Society

UCL Enterprise Society

UCL Enterprise Society provides a vibrant, collective and fun community to suit the needs of the diverse and international student body. The Enterprise Society offers students an opportunity to explore a variety of entrepreneurial themes and a link to important networks that involve alumni and the wider community. The society also provides important leadership opportunities within the school community. Society leaders and active members will devote time and energies in a way that visibly enhances the awareness and experience of students at UCL.

The aim of the society is to greatly reduce the gap between academia and industry by providing an exchange forum for members from both sides. Through this network we help to support the generation of entrepreneurial ideas and to provide insight into how they can be transformed into vehicles for viable and progressive businesses.  At the forefront of our activities are our conferences which will highlight a selection of innovative, diverse, and intelligent business leaders.
