Centres for Doctoral Training and Research

Under the CS department, we run two large centres for doctoral training and research. Our CDTs are multi-disciplinary and provide opportunity for foundational training to help support your research. Currently, we have scholarships available for our Computer Science CDT.

Research Themes

The CS PhD students are active members of their respective research communities and the community as a whole. Their research aligns with one of our four research themes: Artificial Intelligence and Human-Centred Computing, Applied Computing, Data Science, Systems and Security, and Theory and Foundations. Please see these areas for further information about the research and activities of our academics and current research students.
