School of Computing

Working with us

This page, and the pages linked from here, will tell you more about the different ways that we can work together, as an academic department and industry. 

Computer systems change and enhance the world. As an academic department we teach the principles that underlie those systems to the next generation of computing professionals, and perform the research that will underlie the systems to come. Our teaching and research is enhanced by working with partners in industry, commerce and the third sector; a mutually beneficial relationship that also contributes back to our partners.


Much of our research involves industrial partners

Industrial placements

Annually over 100 students take a paid placement. Find out more about becoming a placement employer.


We can help you with short-term work: contract research, training, testing, teaching and research policy advice.


We work with local schools and colleges to share our passion for Computer Science with students through hands-on sessions.


We can run master classes for your staff and deliver bespoke training on our technologies.
