Why Study Data Science?
We are a lively community with well-equipped laboratories, networked computers using industry-standard software and our own library. Our research and other interactions with industry ensure that our courses reflect recent developments. Staff are practising professionals, who work on joint projects and act as consultants to industry.
Career Opportunities in Data Science
Our graduates are proficient in using data to derive insight using up-to-the-minute methods and algorithms. This combination allows you to exploit the new frontier of machine learning and AI, placing you in strategic roles in industry and academia.
Our Research in Data Science
Our research specialties include computer graphics, visualization, knowledge discovery, and communications. Expertise from these areas are incorporated into our teaching activities, giving students direct access to the latest Computer Science research. Our research has performed exceptionally well, which is evidence in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF).
Our research activities are organised in three research groups, which can overlap to maximise synergies and resources Photonics & Communications, Energy Environmental and Bio - Sensing (EEBG) and Visualization, Data, Modelling & Graphics (VDMG).
