Computing research

In this section


Awarded over £15 million in research grants in the last five years, we have a unique vision of computing research as an interdisciplinary set of practices, methods and techniques.

As a result, our research renews and invigorates computer science as a discipline through a range of unusual forms of engagement and activity: artistic works, musical performances, social science studies, alongside the more traditional peer-reviewed paper outputs.

96% of our academic research was judged 'internationally recognised' (2014 Research Assessment Exercise), of which 68% was classed as 'internationally excellent'. We are in the top 20 computer science departments in the UK for research intensity - and in the top four in London (Source: Times Higher Education Supplement​).
