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.

PhD/EngD stu­dents are wel­come to use our facil­i­ties to con­duct research.


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).

You can sub­mit a pro­pos­al to use our facil­i­ties free of charge.
