About us

The digital information age is here. Its impact is global. Its influence on business, education and society is fundamental. The world requires graduates who can use a range of technologies, mathematical skills and design methods to define, develop and deliver solutions that meet user requirements, offer value for money and are environmentally effective.

The School of Computing and Creative Technologies covers a range of diverse subject areas all with one thing in common - the use of IT and mathematical skills to solve problems and to enrich society.

Our work combines the rigours of IT with a deep understanding of the impact of digital technology and engagement with the challenges and opportunities it presents. Our work focuses on user-centred approaches to IT and technology - ensuring that technology meets the needs of those for whom it is intended.

We conduct world class research in unconventional computing, large scale distributed systems, data processing and management and embedded systems. Much of our research is conducted in collaboration with industry and academia, including CERN.

We offer a diverse range of degree programmes, short courses, professional development opportunities, consultancy and international partnerships to meet the needs of both society and business today.
