Unless things have changed very recently, yes -- you need to disable 
secure boot, then you can do an install to UEFI media. I say this with 
the caveat that I have used UEFI-aware Debian install media but the only 
UEFI install I have actually done was of LFS not Debian.

Debian install media can boot a UEFI-aware machine if secure boot is 
disabled. I believe the live images only use MBR boot method, presumably 
so they can work on the largest number of machines, even old ones 
(UEFI-only machines are only just now emerging)
