We are involved in a broad range of research areas, ranging across the Department's four research groups of Digital Ecosystems (DE), Formal Methods and Security (FMS), Multimedia, Security & Forensics (MSF), and Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering (NICE), and with links to the Digital World Research Centre (DWRC). The Department has a strong research culture and a growing research profile, and we have won several prizes, including the University Voting Systems Competition System Design award in 2007, and the prestigious Institution of Engineering and Technology Innovation in Engineering Security award in 2006.
We have a tradition of exploitation and practical application, and we enjoy strong research links with industry. We have a vibrant and active PhD community, and regularly host research visitors and speakers. The Department runs an annual PhD conference series. Below are some pictures of two past editions of the event in 2012 and 2013. A poster of the 2013 PhD conference can be downloaded from here.
