Our Research

Today's research, tomorrow's world

We have an international reputation for the outstanding quality of our research which is grouped into two themes: artificial intelligence and communications systems. 

In the most recent UK Research Excellence Framework, more than two-thirds of our computer science research was classed as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent' (REF 2014)..

With three research centres, our Institute for Analytics and Data Science, and six research groups, at Essex we carry out ground-breaking work in our specialist fields. Our research is interdisciplinary, with strong connections with other departments across the university, and is supported by our extensive range of research laboratories and facilities.

We actively encourage our research students to join one of our groups, giving them access to the latest work in their area of interest and helping foster a culture of collaborative research.
