Department of Computer Science
We are a leading, academic Computer Science department in London, undertaking teaching, research and technology transfer in computing and informatics.
Our award-winning research informs our teaching, ensuring that our material is relevant, up-to-date and innovative.
Being located within the neighbourhood of TechCity, we encourage engagement with principles of business, design, innovation and creativity, in addition to offering a secure foundation in computer science theory.
The enviable employability of our graduates is underpinned by our Professional Liaison Unit, which maintains close contact with our partners in industry. This ensures that the majority of those who study with us benefit from valuable work experience, foster links between their academic knowledge and practical ability, and gain essential networking skills and contacts.
We offer both undergraduate and postgraduate courses within the areas of:
- BSc Computer Science
- BSc Software Engineering
- BSc Computer Science with Games Technology
- MSc e-Business Systems
- MSc Advanced Computer Science
- MSc Computer Games Technology
- MSc Software Engineering
- MSc Information, Security and Risk
- MSc Health Informatics
- BSc Business Computing Systems
- MSc Business Systems Analysis and Design
- MSc Information Systems and Technology
Our courses are accredited by the British Computer Society.
Our internationally renowned research has a long-standing focus on software systems engineering and information intensive systems. We develop novel, enduring and experimentally validated concepts, theories and methods for adaptive software intensive socio-technical systems development; rigorous assessment of critical system qualities; human centric system design and evaluation; and analysis, use and evolution of large and rich media information sets.
We collaborate with a wide range of industrial partners in the UK and overseas, and our work has been applied to and/or influenced practice in several industrial and government sectors including: the nuclear, financial, software and rail industries, health services, and local government.
Our research activities are structured into three broad strategic areas:
1) Software and Systems Engineering (SSE): focus on the development of complex, software intensive socio-technical systems, and the assessment and verification of critical dependability, safety and security properties of such systems.
2) Human Centred Systems (HCS): focus on the evaluation of the accessibility and usability of interactive and pervasive systems supporting human-centric activities, including human decision making, and the development of novel interfaces and devices for such systems.
3) Information-Intensive Systems (IIS): focus on the development of novel methods and frameworks to support the modelling, search, analysis, use and evolution of large and rich media information sets.
