Our academic Schools
Computer Science is a rapidly evolving subject that touches every aspect of our lives. The School of Computing is at the forefront of research in areas such as cyber security, data science, programming languages and systems, and computational intelligence.
Our aim is to convey that knowledge clearly and enthusiastically to our students. By doing so, we equip them with the theoretical and practical skills they need to move on to careers, whether in industry or in academia, where they can bring about positive change in the world. We actively encourage our students to gain hands-on experience in computing and support them to go on placements.
We are recognised both for the quality and impact of our research and the exciting range of undergraduate and postgraduate opportunities on offer. Established over 40 years ago, the School of Engineering has developed a top-quality teaching and research base, receiving excellent ratings in both research and teaching assessments.
We are committed to developing employable, ethical and responsible graduates. We strive to impact positively on contemporary issues, recognising that the unique blend of technological and design expertise within the School is at the forefront of the needs of 21st-century society.
We are a forward-thinking research-led school. We put students first and are committed to ensuring all students have the guidance, skills, opportunities and support they need to excel both at university and in their chosen career.
Our academic staff have strong links with industry, professional societies and influential research organisations. Our research touches on many areas of society including, ecology and conservation, pensions and finance, health, and medical science.
We welcome students and staff from around the world and provide an inclusive environment for all. We have an ongoing commitment to embedding equality, diversity and inclusivity into everything we do, as demonstrated by our Athena SWAN Silver Award.
