Computing provides a distinctive, balanced and enjoyable learning environment, matched to the future needs of both society and the computing field.

Its research has strong foundations in mathematical and logical techniques, and in probabilistic and machine learning algorithms that are applied in its work on computer vision and multi-agent systems. In its applied research, the multi-disciplinary School has an international reputation in computer support for older and disabled people, healthcare computing, space systems and interaction design.

All these areas of research have been developed through strong, long-term relationships with other leading academic institutions worldwide, and in collaboration with professional and industrial partners. The School is also active in commercialising its research, with several recent spin out companies fostering an entrepreneurial atmosphere.

Computing has four major research groups:

  • Human centred computing
  • Intelligent systems
  • Theory of computation
  • Space technology centre
