STEaPP’s research spans STEM and social sciences and is concerned with the role of STEM knowledge in public decision-making. 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). Students are also encouraged to undertake study and research more widely across UCL.
UCL STEaPP is growing rapidly and aims to be a global leader engaged in exploring, experimenting with, and improving the ways in which scientific and engineering expertise and knowledge inform public decision-making and policy processes, across all levels, sectors and cultures of our interdependent societies. STEaPP’s Doctor of Public Administration (DPA) degree is a training pathway for doctoral candidates aspiring to a policy-orientated career, as practitioner or academic, or both. Candidates are expected to undertake original academic research.
