The vibrant research culture of our School strongly encourages cross-disciplinary collaboration with each research section running its own seminar series, as well as contributing to a weekly research forum.

We have over 50 academic staff and more than 100 PhD students. Our research strategy is based on combining world-leading theoretical work with practical applications and much of our research has created high public impact.

Our research degrees enjoy world-wide prestige and we offer postgraduate programmes of outstanding quality. Postgraduate students benefit from the best possible support and supervision and, on graduating, they are well qualified to take up key posts in industry and academia.

Computing Science has held a departmental Bronze Award from Athena SWAN since October 2015, recognising our commitment to provide the resources necessary to eliminate gender bias and create an inclusive culture that values female staff.
