    Is it acceptable to label Biochemical Engineering at UCL a life science?

    Because it encompasses biological engineering (a deffo life science) with chemical engineering.

    It's kind of weird because UCL has a big individual department for biochemical engineering, which offers biotechnology courses (life sciences).

    Also UCL engineering as an engineering institution is like 47th in the world, whereas UCL Biochemical Engineering itself claims it is world renowned (of course they have to say that). Is it therefore acceptable to say that the ranking of UCL engineering is not applicable to UCL Biochemical engineering, and that the ranking of biochemical engineering is more so applicable to the ranking of UCL life sciences (17th in the world)?

    (no pretentious and unhelpful responses please).

    I'd say it's a combination of life and physical.

    How does it make any difference what the ranking is? UCL as a whole is a very good institution to study at!
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
