Hyd y Cwrs nodweddiadol
We are a leading computing department in Wales and one of the major UK departments, both for research and for teaching. We intend to build on our past achievements, to become one of the leading departments at international level.
We are committed to offering courses that prepare you for your professional career; we believe that such courses must combine a sound education in theoretical and practical aspects of the discipline with the development of lasting personal skills, so that you will have the adaptability to thrive in a world of constantly changing technology.
Research in the department is motivated by the needs of industry, business and government; we actively look for opportunities for technology transfer. An important aspect of this is that our research work must be reflected in our teaching. We believe that collaboration in research is essential and we collaborate with industry, with government, and with other academic institutions, on a national and international level. In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2014) assessment, it was found that 100% of the research impact was assessed as world-leading!
The principal research groups are:
- Advanced Reasoning
- Computational Biology
- Intelligent Robotics
- Vision, Graphics & Visualisation
We also have considerably and widely recognised expertise in Software Engineering and Network Technology, Industrial collaborators include Ford, Jaguar Cars, Unilever, Daimler Benz, Integral Solutions Ltd., Costain and Glaxo
Members of staff are always happy to discuss possible MPhil and PhD research programmes with suitably qualified graduates. Research should normally be related to one of the main areas of research of the department. There are about 20 students pursuing postgraduate research programmes in the Department at present, working alongside lecturers and research associates in a lively and well-integrated research community. Grants from Research Councils and other sources may be available through the Department.
Mae gan bron bob un o ddarlithwyr a chymrodyr dysgu’r Adran Cyfrifiadureg gymwysterau hyd at safon PhD, ac mae gan y gweddill brofiad helaeth ym maes ymchwil neu ddiwydiant. Mae'n rhaid i bob darlithydd a chymrawd dysgu newydd ennill cymhwyster TUAAU, ac felly maent yn Gymrodyr Uwch neu'n Gymrodyr o'r Academi Addysg Uwch. Mae'r adran hefyd yn cyflogi nifer o staff arddangos a thiwtoriaid rhan amser a rhai arddangoswyr sy'n fyfyrwyr, wedi’u dewis o blith ein hisraddedigion a'n huwchraddedigion. Mae ein cymrodyr ymchwil a'n cynorthwywyr ymchwil (y rhan fwyaf ohonynt â gradd PhD) hefyd yn gwneud rhywfaint o waith dysgu o bryd i'w gilydd pan fo hynny'n briodol.
