Department of Computer Science

We are an active department, proud of our reputation as a friendly and supportive environment for our students. We specialise in security and artificial intelligence research.


We're hiring!

We are looking for a new permanent faculty member at lecturer level in one or more of the following areas: Machine learning, cloud computing, distributed systems, programming-languages principles, and the intersection of security and AI, which are already areas of research within the Department. We are also interested in candidates who have experience in data science, edge networks, social computing and DevOps security, in order to expand our research in new directions.

We offer our undergraduate students the chance to do a Professional Training placement where you can work in industry in the UK or abroad, and undergraduate and masters students the opportunity to study abroad. We also have specialist facilities to help you during your studies like our Science Research Investment Fund (SRIF) High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster.

Industry and outreach

We maintain strong links with business and industry at a number of levels and run a number of different activities for schools and colleges to raise awareness of computing and its applications.
