The Department of Computer Science at the University of Bath has the highest quality staff and students engaged in leading edge research, teaching and learning. Computer Science has been consistently ranked in the top-ten departments in the UK since its establishment.
The Department has strong links with other departments in the University in both its research and teaching. These links stretch across all faculties, Science, Engineering, Humanities, and the Schools of Management and Health. Collaborations involve us with staff in many departments, such as Mathematical Sciences, Psychology, Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Health, Biology, Architecture, and Social Policy.
The Department of Computer Science at Bath University was created in 2001 and has since trebled in terms of both staff numbers and research volume.
The interdisciplinary nature of the Department's research is reflected in the vibrant academic and research staff community. Staff have backgrounds which include Computing, Engineering, Mathematics and Psychology and many are active in a number of collaborative research centres such as the Media Technology Research Centre and the EPSRC-funded Centre for Digital Entertainment. Involvement with industry at both regional and international levels is high. Regionally, we have close links with HP Laboratories, BAe Systems, Airbus, Vodafone and Toshiba Researchs labs. These collaborations benefit both our research and teaching activities, providing opportunities for research, seminars, student projects and placements, graduate and postgraduate employment.
The Department of Computer Science at Bath supports a range of theoretical and applied computer science research. The main research interests are grouped under three themes: Human Computer Interaction, Mathematical Foundations, and Media Technology. Cutting across these themes is a body of research in the area of Artificial Intelligence.
