Department of Computer Science

Welcome to the Department of Computer Science at NTU. The department combines internationally significant research with an outstanding record for teaching excellence. Our state-of-the-art facilities and career-focused approach to course design provide the right conditions for students to succeed in their chosen fields.

Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are designed to be industrially relevant with the right balance of theory and practice. The British Computing Society (BCS) have accredited all of our undergraduate degrees to Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status, and towards Chartered Engineer (CEng) status with the Engineering Council. We are a thriving department combining expertise with modern facilities and equipment to create an outstanding environment for learning and development.

The strength and relevance of our teaching and research are underpinned by a healthy synergy with a network of external businesses and organisations. We have over 200 industrial placement partners, including Microsoft, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, Schlumberger, HP, Santander and Refinitiv.

Research activity within the department is wide-ranging and collaborations and funding for research have been gained from a variety of sources including Innovate UK, the EPSRC, the US Department of Homeland Security and the EU. Our research is internationally recognised, particularly in the areas of serious games, computational intelligence and security.

Our research

The Computing and Informatics Research Centre’s (CIRC) unifying and overarching research vision is ‘Enabling Digital Technology’ and is grounded in high-quality, interdisciplinary work with expertise in advanced computer science topics with links to partners from both academia and industry. The CIRC’s research is delivered by four groups.

Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021

In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021, 86% of NTU's research impact was assessed to be either world-leading or internationally excellent. The overall quality of each Unit of Assessment NTU submitted to REF in 2021 also saw an improvement from the previous REF in 2014.
