Course summary

Overview

STEaPP's research spans STEM and social sciences and is concerned with the role of STEM knowledge in public decision-making at the local, national and international levels. Doctoral students typically work across two UCL departments, with a public policy focus at STEaPP and an applied methodological focus in a sister department within UCL BEAMS (the UCL Faculties of the Built Environment, Engineering Sciences, and Mathematical & Physical Sciences).

Careers

The PhD aims to foster world-class interdisciplinary researchers. Graduates may choose to concentrate on an academic career or are likely to be attractive to employers as scientific advisers.

Employability

Students acquire a body of knowledge on the role of science, engineering and technology in public policy decision-making, together with solid training in research methods and designing and executing resesarch initiatives which are relevant and usable for external partners. This skill-set is ideal for a career path either as an academic or a senior-level scientific adviser.
