Computing Science Research

We carry out fundamental computing science research. We evaluate this research and apply it to industrial and interdisciplinary challenges.

Our computer science research constantly evolves to address the new challenges posed by a fast-changing environment. Computer systems are becoming ever more complex, critical and interconnected. They're often directly related to the public.

World-leading computing science research

The School of Computing received a fantastic result in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 exercise. We jumped from 22nd to 9th place in the UK by GPA. This places us in the top quartile for Computing Science. All of our impact case studies were judged to be world-leading.

In REF2021 Research England increased Impact to be worth a total of 25% of the assessment.

Computing submitted 4 impact case studies in the REF2021 exercise.

Details of some of the submitted case studies are below.
