Main research areas of interest, Image / Video Processing and Analysis Techniques and Applications, Wireless Mobile Network Technologies, Bio-metric-based Authentications for constrained devices / environments.
The academic staff in the School of Computing are all engaged in research. Over recent years, the School has successfully attracted research funding from various sources in the UK and the EU, including industry, research councils, HEA and EU framework projects such as FP6.
In image processing we mainly, but not exclusively, use wavelet transform techniques for facial feature detection and recognition, online image / video compression for constrained devices, visual speech recognition, feature detection in biomedical images, digital watermarking, content-based video indexing for bio-metric video databases.
In the wireless networking area, our research effort focuses on convergence and integration of different wireless technologies and standards, wireless mesh technologies, intrusion detection and prevention, efficiency and stability of ad-hoc networks.
Entry requirements: a first or second class honours degree, or significant experience computing.
Selection process: wherever possible, you will be invited to the University to meet the Admissions Tutor for an informal interview and to have a tour of our campus. If you are an international applicant, it may not be possible for you to visit in person, so if the Admissions Tutor has any queries about your application you may be conducted by Skype, email or phone.
