The Institute for Computing System Architecture (ICSA) will provide you with academic resources and industry links that are among the best in the world.
We are home to the UK’s largest group of PhD researchers in the field, and host a Centre of Excellence in partnership with ARM, the world’s largest microprocessor intellectual property provider. We are also a member of the European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation.
Our students see their degrees as a launchpad for their careers, and many have established themselves as world-class researchers and developers. By joining their ranks, you will be able to make your mark on the next generation of technological innovations.
Our current research is focused on the areas of compilers and architectures, parallel computing, wireless networking and processor-automated synthesis by iterative analysis. Our wireless communication group is particularly strong, and presently working on expanding wireless reach within Scotland.
While the scope for research is wide, each area is underpinned by our fundamental aims: to extend understanding of existing systems; to improve current systems; and to develop new architecture and engineering methods.
