Since its formation some 30 years ago, the School has embarked on an ambitious programme of investment and growth, and is now firmly established as a leading centre for Computer Science research. Our vision of Computing at Nottingham focuses on engaging world-leading research with real-world problems, and involves a shared ethos of “computing in the world” in which fundamental advances in Computer Science are connected to knowledge and methods from other disciplines to enable deep collaborations with research users in diverse sectors.
The School's core research is delivered by the following groups:
The impact of the School’s research is enhanced through the following interdisciplinary centres:
HORIZON – a national centre for digital economy research that combines a research hub and a centre for doctoral training.
LANCS – an initiative spanning four universities with the strategic aim of strengthening and growing operational research in the UK.
CPIB – brings together computer scientists, biologists and engineers to tackle major challenges for the future of plant and crop science.
ADAC – supports research that involves analysing large and complex data sets.
