The department’s research aim is to continue developing its research culture, capacity and international reputation. We are committed to engaging in knowledge generation, applicable research and enhanced societal impact activities. Expertise is housed in the research centre and visual computing lab and it is primarily focused around smart data analytics and visualisation, disruptive technologies and smart applications, cyber security, autonomous systems and robotics, telecommunications, computer vision, augmented and virtual reality.
Academics, post-doctoral and PhD researchers have access to cutting-edge facilities including state-of-the-art software (SAS, Matlab, Unity, and others) and hardware (high-end servers, robots, transparent touchscreens, Hololens, VIVEs and the first 4K CAVE installed in a UK academic institution).
The department has also an established community of Postgraduate Researchers undertaking research in different areas of computer science. We operate under a university research governance and ethics framework.
