Forá150 years, UCL has been at the forefront of engineering education and innovation - join us to celebrate our legacy and share our ambitions for the future, at the UCL Festival of Engineering from Monday 15 - Saturday 20 July 2024.

For six days, we will show the next generation of creative minds how,átogether, we can tackle some of humanity’s biggest challenges:
  • Climate change
  • A data-empowered society
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Equality and diversity


Our exciting lineup includes:
  • hand-on demonstrations across Bloomsbury from our staff and students,
  • a fireside chat with an astronaut and an engineering baker,
  • a thought-provoking show at Bloomsbury Theatre,
  • an augmented reality tour of the UCL campus telling the story of UCL Engineering
  • and much more!


The Festival of Engineering will be an extraordinary event, and you can be part of it. Bring yourself, friends, families and anyone who you think would benefit from knowing more about what we do.
