Creative, imaginative approaches to finding solutions to society's problems are at the heart of studying Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at Essex.
At Essex we were among the founders of artificial intelligence in the UK and pioneered the systems approach to telecommunications. Our integrated approach allows us to specialise in areas as diverse as assistive technologies, brain-computer interfaces, computer games, evolutionary computation, computational finance, Big Data, human language technology, intelligent environments, future networks, optoelectronics and robotics. We are home to many of the world’s top scientists and engineers in their field, and our work is driven by creativity and imagination as well as technical excellence.
"Prior to coming to Essex, I knew nothing about programming or computer networks. I only had a basic understanding of computers and how to use them. My lecturers were very helpful so even if you have no background knowledge on anything computer related, there is a lot of help provided."
