Programme Aims

Studying for a PhD or MPhil at the Cardiff School of Computer Science & Informatics offers you the opportunity to become part of a strong, dynamic and internationally successful research school.

Special Features

  • Several laboratories support these interests, including one for human factors technology (which has a real-time 3D video capture system and motion capture systems), another for solid modelling (which houses 3D laser scanners and 3D displays) and a third for visual computing (which has a range of image capture and processing systems and haptic devices).
  • Each laboratory represents a significant investment that, in turn, contributes to the success of the group’s research.
