Creative, committed, experimental
From making businesses run smoothly to gaming and simulating behaviour, many everyday processes have a basis in computing, while advances in electronics have made the internet, innovative telecommunications and inexpensive computing possible. At Essex we teach and research at undergraduate, Masters and postgraduate research levels, in all these areas and more.
Our research is changing people’s lives and underpins tomorrow’s must-have technologies. Research and development has to stay one step ahead of the industry, so our curriculum is constantly evolving.
