Computers are now part of almost every facet of our lives. In the School of Computing Sciences, we research the application of computational techniques to areas as diverse as biology, insurance, medicine, images and speech. In doing this, we collaborate with multi-national companies such as Apple, Disney and Aviva, as well as research institutes on the Norwich Research Park, other international universities, and other UEA Schools. Our research is highly acclaimed, with 80% rated as world-leading or internationally excellent in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (REF 2014). We also have an outstanding research environment, judged to be 100% world-leading or internationally excellent.
Our research is mostly in the applications of computers, but built on a solid theoretical foundation. To find out what we do, please see Research Laboratories. It is funded from several sources, including the UK Research Councils, the EU, the NHS, Government sources and industry. We have our own consultancy company, SYS Consulting Ltd, and this enables us to apply our research and expertise to problems presented by clients, who range from local authorities to SMEs and national and international companies. The School has also spun out a number of companies itself.
Currently, we have around 25 research-active faculty members, 15 research staff 70 postgraduate research students. Faculty also teach, and so our research informs and influences our teaching, which is vital in a fast-moving field such as computing.
