In Electronics and Computer Science (ECS), we have created an environment that has inspired an extraordinary level of achievement. We seek to develop new research activities and educational programmes to continue our contributions to science and engineering in a world facing significant challenges.
Our research explores the interface between electronics and computer science, and benefits significantly from interdisciplinary links with other schools, institutes and faculties.
Explore everything we do, from taught courses and research, to news, events and policies.
