Course content

The Department of Computer Science has a dynamic research culture with an international reputation. We are committed to delivering inspiring teaching and cutting-edge research at the forefront of technological innovation.

Founded in 1974, the Department of Computer Science is one of the most well-established university computing departments in the UK with a long track record of developing skilled and highly employable graduates, as well as a reputation for cutting edge research and industry engagement.

Based in the recently multi-million pound refurbished Haslegrave Building, the Department is one of the largest within the School of Science. It brings together a lively community of over 40 members of staff, around 500 undergraduates, 50 taught MSc students and 50 research students.

Committed to providing the best teaching and learning environment, our students benefit not only from excellent facilities and world-class cutting edge research carried out by staff, but from our enviable international industry links. Our Industry Liaison Committee represents leading UK and international companies, providing regular input to curriculum development, career advice to students and additional teaching resources.

Industry partners shape the way research and projects are conducted. Organisations such as BAE Systems, Jennic, Arqiva, Sure, Advantica, Toyota, Sensinode and Rolls-Royce have collaborated with the Department in order to develop new ideas and solve the challenges facing industry today.

These links with industry ensure the Department of Computer Science sits at the forefront of technological development – and also provide early opportunities for students to secure employment.

We have a talented research community which continues to make a valuable contribution to the rapidly-developing Computer Science sector, particularly in areas such as wireless communications, multimedia, logistics, healthcare, the emergency services, transport, surveillance and the environment.

Our research ranges from underlying mathematical theory to the practical creation and operation of networked systems.
