We are involved in a broad range of research areas within the department and across the University.
Research in the department
We have been named as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research, by the NCSC and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), due to our internationally leading cyber security research.
Our cyber security research is the core of the Surrey Centre for Cyber Security (SCCS), and is based on evolutionary computation, machine learning and computational neuroscience with wide applications to data-driven industrial optimisation, healthcare and bioinformatics.
We have a tradition of exploitation and practical application, and retain strong research links with industry. We have a vibrant and active postgraduate research community, and regularly host research visitors and speakers. The Department is always organising diverse research related and social activities.
