Course Introduction

The PhD programme in computer science offers students the opportunity to participate fully in the highly interdisciplinary research environment of our department and of the College as a whole. We aim for all our students to produce innovative ideas and to develop those ideas into fully-fledged research results and software and hardware systems, working within the creative atmosphere of our department.

We currently offer MPhil/PhD supervision in many areas of computing, including: computational creativity; computer vision and audition; interactions between art, media and technology; adaptive hypermedia systems; artificial intelligence. The department and the College provide training in research methods and in technical skills; we have a number of regular research meetings and seminars, from formal lectures to more informal workshops and discussion groups, and students are encouraged to present their work to the department at least once a year. There are also opportunities for students to participate in the teaching activities of the department.
