World leading technology research, in theory and practice
The 2014 Research Excellence Framework rated 97% of our research as being world-leading or internationally excellent, the highest proportion of any Computer Science department in the UK.
With our close industry partnerships and Russell Group status we enjoy strong funding and have recently invested £5m in our facilities. It is the perfect setting for world class experts to do ground-breaking research.
To best support our research we have flexible platforms that reflect our core interests and strengths. These platforms inspire innovative cross-disciplinary collaborations, with specialists throughout the University and across the world.
A summary of our research and its applications can be found in our CS Research Brochure
The current research platforms are grouped into two main sections, each containing a number of more specialised areas. These are:
- Algorithms, Complexity Theory and Optimisation
- Economics and Computation
- Networks and Distributed Computing
