The countdown to completion begins!
Staff and students partners in the Departments of Computer Science and Mathematics are very much looking forward to starting the next academic year in the new multi-million pound Computational Foundry building on the Bay Campus.
The new £32.5 million world-class facility will act as a beacon for research collaborations and will look to attract leading researchers to Wales, placing Swansea at the heart of a thriving regional ecosystem of digital companies and research.
The Computational Foundry is backed by £17m from the European Regional Development Fund and will drive research into computational and mathematical sciences and make Wales a global destination for computational scientists and industrial partners.
The University’s vision is to nurture and grow a dedicated community of computational and mathematical scientists who pursue transformative research and believe that better computational science is vital in building a progressive world: socially, economically, culturally, philosophically and intellectually.
As the finishing touches are being added to the building, the Computational Foundry as a community is celebrating some great news: PhD student Cameron has just been announced as finalist in EPSRC's Connected Nation Pioneers Competition and Dr Bob Laramee is the recipient of a £358,000 EPSRC grant for his research into 'Bringing Healthcare Data to Life.'
