Equality, diversity and inclusion

We are committed to a culture built on respect and care.

Our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion

UCL Mechanical Engineering is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. The department is committed to creating an environment that is inclusive, fair, respectful and equal.

UCL defines ‘equality’ as the absence of unjust social hierarchy such as those based on age, disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and religion, and ‘diversity’ as the presence of different cultural traditions and identities.

We wish to foster a positive cultural climate where all staff and students can flourish, where no-one will feel compelled to conceal or play down elements of their identity for fear of stigma.

We are part of a faculty-wide and University-wide plan to implement an Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Strategy that spans 2015-2020.

UCL Student Society of Women Engineers

Founded in 2013, the UCL Student Society of Women Engineers aims to create a meaningful community body of women in all fields of engineering – at postgraduate and undergraduate level.

Membership is £5 per academic year and gives members access to all events. Members get the chance to win sponsorship to external events.

The society organises:

  • Opportunities for networking
  • Professional development
  • Mentoring

It also encourages participation in outreach activities, inviting women from academia, industry or other backgrounds to speak to members.
