The Department of Computing Science is one of the
foremost in the UK, setting itself the highest standards in research
and teaching. It forms part of the Faculty
of Information and Mathematical Sciences and was rated as one of the top 10 computing science departments in the UK in the 2008 RAE.
The academic staff comprises 8 Professors, 10 Senior Lecturers, and 17 Lecturers. These are supported by an IT Officer, a Systems Manager, 2 Programmers, 4 Technicians, a Departmental Administrator, a Teaching Administrator, an Information Officer, and 4 staff. Currently there are also 3 Honorary Professors, 6 Research Fellows, 30 Research Assistants, and about 78 Research Students.
The Department provides an invigorating and friendly working environment.
It is large enough to sustain a rich diversity of interests, but small
enough for everyone to know everyone else. The departmental ethos is
that of a team working together to deliver high-quality research and
EPSRC-funded research projects 24, EC-funded projects 6, industrially
funded projects 7, and several research fellowships. The current
grants and fellowships total more than £6M.
