Department of Computer Science


Our Department has a distinguished history of world-changing research contributions, and we seek to continue pushing the boundaries of computer science in the present day.

We seek to tackle society’s greatest challenges, seeing our subject as a virtuous circle - investigating new computing paradigms and feeding this back into our work to create real-world impact.

Our research is structured across several broad themes:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Data science
  • Future computing systems
  • Human centred computing
  • Software and e-infrastructure
  • Theory and foundations

We have close links and strong relationships with centres and institutes across the University, giving our researchers outstanding facilities to conduct innovative research.

We continue to positively impact society through film production, scientific literature and AI, among other areas.
