Reflecting Computer Science research at Swansea
Our research excellence
- The Department submitted all 22 of its research-active staff for RAE2008.
- 25% of our submitted research was assessed as world-leading quality.
- More than 75% of our submitted publications were assessed as world-leading or internationally excellent.
- Only 12 other UK Computer Science departments achieved a higher percentage of world-leading research.
Swansea computer scientists enjoy working with a huge range of collaborators from all over the world and play their part in leading the development of the subject. Our main research areas are currently:
The Department offers an active and stimulating research atmosphere for postgraduate research students. Its internationally-leading research groups offer expert supervision for Masters and PhD studies.
The Department awards bursaries and scholarships each summer, in addition to those funded by the University.
The recent publications of all our academic staff are (to be) listed on Cronfa, the University's online research repository.
Individual staff members maintain lists of their publications on their personal home pages, which are accessible via our staff list.
The department's technical report series was discontinued in 2011.
Research group seminars
Our research groups run their own series of research seminars. These seminars often assume familiarity with a particular research topic, but all are welcome to attend.
The Department also has a series of Distinguished Lectures, whose topics are intended to be accessible – and of interest – to all our academic staff and students.
