We offer undergraduate, postgraduate masters and postgraduate research programmes in computing, bringing together the best of computer science.
Across all our degress, programming is industry-standard and we have comprehensive support for our Professional Training year
We are involved in a broad range of research areas within the department and across the University.
We have a highly active postgraduate research community (around 50 PhD students) with industrial sponsorships.
93 percent of our UG students are employed or studying, six months after graduation.
Dr Haiyue Yuan, Dr Shujun Li, Miss Nouf Aljaffan from the Department of Computer Science and Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS), and Dr Patrice Rusconi of the School of Psychology, have won the Best Paper Award of the 5th International Conference on Human Aspects of Information Security, Privacy and Trust (HAS 2017), held as part of the 19th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction (HCII 2017/HCI International 2017), Vancouver, Canada, July 9-14, 2017.
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) is again providing bursary funding for adults looking to retrain and start a new career in cyber security. The bursaries are for GCHQ-certified courses including the MSc Information Security programme offered by the Department of Computer Science and supported by the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS, a GCHQ recognised Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research), University of Surrey.
In the first half of 2017, three researchers from SCCS (Surrey Centre for Cyber Security) and Surrey's Department of Computer Science, Prof Liqun Chen, Dr François Dupressoir and Dr Ioana Boureanu, co-authored four research papers presented at top cyber security conferences including 38th IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy (S&P 2017), 2nd European Symposium on Security and Privacy (Euro S&P 2017) and 36th Annual International Conference on the Theory and Applications of Cryptographic Techniques (EUROCRYPT 2017). We look forward to more such successes in future!
The University of Surrey and Singapore Management University (SMU) will lead one of six new joint research projects which will see UK and Singapore-based researchers working together to strengthen knowledge and capabilities in cyber security.
Professor Chen, who joined the Department of Computer Science on 3 October, will lead research into hardware security and cryptography – a key specialism within the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security. She moves to the University from Hewlett Packard (HP) Labs where she was principal research scientist in the Security and Manageability Laboratory.
Professor Yaochu Jin has been given the honour of IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers) Fellow in recognition of his achievements in the field of evolutionary optimisation.
