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.
