Course summary

Overview

Focus your studies on distributed and parallel systems through our Computer Science and Informatics research programmes (MPhil, PhD). Studying for a PhD or MPhil in the area of distributed and parallel systems will see you join the School as part of a successful team of researchers with a range of industrial partners and academic collaborators. Research in computer science and informatics is all about going beyond current knowledge and technologies to build the computing systems of the future. Technologies we now take for granted, like the web, smartphones, and databases, are all products of past research in computer science and informatics. So what will the future bring? Researchers here at Cardiff are currently working on new developments in areas like computer graphics, data mining, and ‘intelligent’ mobile systems. We hope that our research will enable new kinds of computing applications, products and systems to help people in areas like healthcare, the environment, security and business. Conducting research in computer science and informatics is exciting and challenging and we offer you the opportunity to work alongside our research staff who are leaders in their areas of expertise. They publish widely, edit and review for international journals, act as external examiners both within the UK and internationally, provide consultancy and secure research funding.
