Hear about studying with us from students and staff in our computer science and electronic engineering videos. You can also see our facilities in action
and hear about some of the cutting edge research being undertaken in our School.
We have an outstanding reputation for teaching and
high-quality research in both computer science and electronic
engineering. In the most recent UK Research Assessment Exercise
(RAE 2008), 65% of our research was classed as world-leading or
internationally excellent. In the National Student Satisfaction
survey 2013, we were ranked first in the UK for computer science
and fourth for electronic engineering.
Our research includes cutting-edge
work on artificial intelligence (including assistive
technologies, brain-computer interfaces, computer games,
evolutionary computation, human language technology and
robotics) and communications (for example, future networks and
optoelectronics). We offer courses at the
postgraduate (Masters and PhD) levels, and are committed to
ensuring our students fulfil their potential and go on to work
in the sectors they aspire to.
