About the Programme

From data analysis to artificial intelligence, drive innovation with PhD Computer Science at Brunel University London.

When you join the Computer Science research community at Brunel you will be a part of an internationally recognised computing department, ranked 5th in the UK in the Performance Ranking of Scientific Papers for World Universities and 1st in the UK for H-index (source NTU 2018). We have strengths in research into computing methodologies (Intelligent data analysis, artificial intelligence, simulation and modelling), software engineering, human-centred computing (HCI and interactive multimedia systems) and digital economy (including IoT, trust, privacy and cybersecurity). Our research delivers computing solutions to industrial and societal challenges, with applications including healthcare, overseas development, education, ecology, finance and manufacturing. 

Join one of our research areas:

AI: Social and Digital Innovation

Focus on social, economic and strategic effects of AI and associated technologies. Investigate the impact of AI and related technologies on societies, organisations and individuals.

Software Engineering 

Deep dive into all sides of empirical and formal investigations of software artefacts – code, formal models and human aspects.

Computational Biology 

Develop and apply novel methodologies for computational modelling, simulation and analysis of biological systems

Computer Science for Social Good 

Investigate and develop new ways and innovative technologies to address challenging socio-economic problems

Creative Computing

Conduct multidisciplinary research at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence (machine learning), serious and fun gaming, and cognitive modelling to simulate a physical world either as a virtual, augmented or mixed reality environment.

Digital Economy

Focus on international digital economy research capability in areas including cybersecurity, trust, identity and privacy challenges, and big data analytics.

Human-Computer Interaction

Investigate ways in which humans and computers can interact through intuitive interface design, understanding of human factors and multimedia.

Digital Futures

Innovate and advance digital science and technology, aligning your research with the Grand Challenges of the UK’s Industrial Strategy, and enhance the global citizen’s quality of life.

Intelligent Data Analysis

Effectively analyse data involving artificial intelligence, dynamic systems, image and signal processing, optimisation, pattern recognition, statistics and visualisation.

Intelligent Digital Economy and Society

Research intelligent digital economy and society using AI, data analytics, 6G, media, human-machine interaction, digital games, augmented and virtual reality, digital twins, IoTs, cyber security, data & information fusion.

Interactive Multimedia Systems

Build sensor and media-rich, cross-layer, inclusive e-systems, combining human-machine interaction, sensorial-based interfaces, data visualisation and multimedia.

Modelling and Simulation

Investigate how modelling and simulation can be supported by research into high-performance computing, e-infrastructures, cyberinfrastructures, cloud computing and web-based simulation.

Smart Technology Advancements in Health and Rehabilitation

Bridge the gap between clinical sciences, engineering and computing for sustainable developments in personal and community health needs.
