Medical Physics & Biomedical Engineering

Welcome to the first edition of the UCL Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering Alumni Newsletter. This newsletter will be published twice a year, in summer and winter.

We are very proud of our former students and their achievements, and we know how important our alumni are in shaping the programmes we offer, supporting current students via mentoring, advice, speaking engagements, and providing graduate recruitment opportunities.

Ours is a dynamic, vibrant department with an active, engaged community of staff and students, and many opportunities for you to get involved and to link up with your fellow alumni.

So please read on to discover the latest news from the Department, to register for forthcoming events, and find out how you can get involved.

With best wishes
