Collaborating with industry, in teaching and research

The Department has strong, mutually beneficial relationships with leading organisations in many sectors of industry and business.

We have an Industry Liaison Committee, made up of representatives from our industrial partners, that provides strategic advice on issues such as research, curriculum development, teaching methods, outreach and collaboration.

Many of our industry partners support our teaching programmes, for example by hosting placements or providing case studies, project opportunities, tours, vacation work and guest lecturers.

In turn, we provide them with a rich source of talent, including our research experts and students.

The Department hosts industry events such as the annual Computer Science Industrial Symposium. Speakers from industry and the Department speak about opportunities for collaboration and technology transfer.
