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.

The Interactive Systems Research Group focuses on the development of new technologies for the cognitive and physical rehabilitation of users within the real world.

Underwater Plastic Detection

Underwater Plastic Detection

The Underwater Plastic detection (UPD) delivers non-evasive approach where an underwater drone is used to collect video and image of plastics. The UPD is helping to understand how macro-plastics are transported underwater by georeferencing the data collected. Therefore, the UPD will allow to estimate how much of that plastic is deposited in the Trent riverbed and, how those plastics are affecting the ecosystem. .

Featured Facility

Computing facilities

With over £8 million invested, our computer science students will study in the Mary Ann Evans building, designed to very high specifications with a variety of electronic and communication laboratories.
