Our specialist areas  

The School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences has a rich research base and is interested specifically in the following key areas:

  • Network and information security
  • Network appliances
  • Computer games technology
  • Applied computing
  • Critical infrastructure protection
  • Neural computing and statistics

Within these key areas, our dedicated research teams, together with our postgraduate research students, produced fantastic research. For example, in the latest research assessment (REF2014) 80% of our research impact is at international level, whilst overall 48% of our research is internationally recognised or higher.

In addition to this, we have also created an impressive publication output and have secured high levels of external funding, including €13.9 million EU funding for our work with Aniketos, €2.6 milllion for our work with Wi-5 and £40,000 for our VIBRANT project.

Our dynamic research community is also involved in a diverse mix of international research conferences, such as the IEEE and ACM conferences.

In addition to our research, our School has a long-standing history of working with local, regional and national industries through student placement, research, consultancy, short course activity and knowledge transfer partnerships. The School also has number of collaborative partnerships locally, nationally and internationally.

The School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences has a strong track record of collaborating with industry, having previously used our expertise to work with organisations such as the BBC, Panasonic, EPSRC and Thales.
