Course summary

Research in our department is motivated by the needs of industry, business and government; we actively look for opportunities for technology transfer. An important aspect of this is that our research work must be reflected in our teaching. In essence, our Department nurtures the ingenuity of staff and students to grow expertise, think and live outside the box, and solve global problems.

Overview

We are a leading computing department in Wales and one of the major UK departments, both for research and for teaching. We intend to build on our past achievements, to become one of the leading departments at international level.

We believe that collaboration in research is essential and we collaborate with industry, with government, and with other academic institutions, at a national and international level. Our industrial collaborators include Qinetiq, Ford, Jaguar Cars, Unilever, Daimler Benz, Integral Solutions Ltd., Costain, Glaxo, and the NHS.

Aberystwyth University has a proud tradition of research excellence, as demonstrated in the most recent Research Excellence Framework assessment (REF 2014), which placed the university in the top 50 institutions for research power and intensity. In this Research Excellence Framework assessment, the Department of Computer Science was ranked 11th in the UK for research intensity with 100% of its research deemed either world-leading or internationally excellent in terms of research impact.

Our postgraduate research students work alongside lecturers and research associates in a lively and well-integrated research community. Members of staff are always happy to discuss possible MPhil and PhD research programmes with suitably qualified graduates. Research should normally be related to one of the main areas of research of the Department. Grants from Research Councils and other sources (e.g., the University and the Institute of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science) may be available through the Department.

Employability

We are committed to offering courses that prepare you for your professional or academic career; we believe that such courses must combine a sound education in the theoretical and practical aspects of the discipline with the development of lasting personal skills, so that you will have the adaptability to thrive in a world of constantly changing technology.
