UCL Centre for Virtual Environments, Interaction and Visualisation
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.
Visionair calls for the creation of a European infrastructure for high level visualisation facilities that are open to research communities across Europe and around the world. By integrating existing facilities, Visionair aims to create a world-class research infrastructure for conducting state-of-the-art research in visualisation, thus significantly enhancing the attractiveness and visibility of the European Research Area (ERA).
