School of Computer Science


We have research groups operating across the spectrum, from fundamental theory and innovative technology, through novel hardware and software systems design, to leading-edge applications.

For Computer Science and Informatics we have been ranked in the top 5% in the UK (4th out of 89 submissions) based on GPA.

REF2014 assessed that The University of Manchester is the best environment in the UK for computer science and informatics research.

94% of our research was classed as “world-leading” (4*) or “internationally excellent” (3*) and all of our impact case studies were ranked 3* and 4*, which puts us joint-top for research impact. To find out more about some of the impact our research in computer science has, please see some of our Research impact case studies.
