- MRes VEIV programme
VEIV is the UCL Centre in Virtual Environments, Interaction and Visualisation. VEIV projects advance the science and engineering of computational capture, rendering and simulation in a diverse range of applications. VEIV runs both Engineering Doctorate and PhD programmes, through which research engineers (REs) are fully co-funded to undertake research relating to virtual environments, imaging and visualisation in engineering and design. PhDs are three or four years in duration (depending on funding structure), while EngD is a four-year programme including masters-level training. Some projects also include an intensive MSc/MRes taught course in the first year. The EngD/PhD programmes are targeted at outstanding students and engineers who want to direct research in industry, or want to maintain significant links with industry in an academic career.
PhD/EngD projects are funded through UCL's prestigious studentship awards scheme. This requires an application to be made by a UCL academic leader with a financial committment from a sponsoring company. Interested candidates are encouraged to submit an expression of interest to the VEIV Manager, and to visit our Current Vacancies page.Read more
