Our school is leading education and research in secure and people-friendly technologies that benefit our increasingly connected and data-rich world.

Technologies, such as machine learning, artificial intelligence and human-machine interfaces, are vital for businesses and communities to thrive. Our work revolves around the need for computer-based solutions that are secure, effective and people-orientated.

We're home to research groups that deliver industry and community-based solutions in human-computer interaction, information security and data science.

Our research

In an increasingly complex and fast moving world, the School of Computer Science conducts fundamental and applied research into helping people with differing abilities interact effectively with data, keeping data secure, transferring and storing data efficiently, and analysing data to produce new insights.

Our major research partners include:

Knowledge gained from our research projects also informs our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching courses.
