UCL Civil, Environmental and ResearchGeomatic Engineering (CEGE) has consistently been among the best funded such departments in the UK, with an array of researchers and groups that lead the field.

In 2011 we received £17.2m of funding from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, more than any comparable department. We are taking on the big issues that face our world, from city design, managing an ageing population and transport infrastructure, to water processing and energy and resource management. 

The research carried out within the CEGE Centres reflects a broad multidisciplinary view of the engineering world – from navigation of space shuttles and control of observation satellites, to tunnelling beneath the planet's surface - with constant reference to the human needs which drive the requirement for engineering solutions. Our research projects and centres span disciplines and cross subjects to provide new and innovative solutions and thinking that refers back to the human and the applied.  We're engineering a better world.

Find out more about the work going on in CEGE through the research groups below or engineering sections to the left. You can also download our Research Report 2017.
