About the School of Computing at the University of Dundee

Our School of Computing is truly distinctive. We collaborate with a broad range of groups to ensure that technological systems are built to meet the needs and aspirations of a wide variety of people. Our work benefits society and helps to enhance the lives of many individuals.

Our focus on two areas of internationally leading excellence – Human Centred Computing and Intelligent Systems – equips us to contribute to a diverse range of fields, including: assistive technologies and inclusive design, space technology, argumentation and artificial intelligence. These are just a few areas that structure the School’s research and its postgraduate and undergraduate portfolios. Work in these fields often involves enriching interdisciplinary collaboration with students and researchers from areas such as biomedical and clinical sciences, creative arts and business.

Our focus on Human Centred Computing and Intelligent Systems means that the School plays a vital role in addressing real world problems. Students and staff at the School have a particular ability to respond to the ever-changing needs of people, formulating unique and effective solutions. This has led to the rich array of partnerships that we have across the University, as well as nationally and internationally.

We have a very interactive approach to teaching and learning. We use a combination of lectures, tutorials and lab sessions to ensure that our students fully develop their theoretical and practical skills. Our Human Centred Computing and Intelligent Systems research groups both comprise around 20 staff, with current funding of about £3.5m. The groups cover a range of cognate research themes and are structured to allow us to capitalise upon our critical mass in these areas.

Internationally recognised for our creativity, discovery and diversity, we are one of the leading computing schools in Scotland. Along with being home to one of the world’s premier centres for assistive technologies, the school’s unique and award-winning Queen Mother Building also houses a number of teaching and research laboratories, a Human Interface research theatre, an exhibition space for demonstrations of student and staff work, and a wide variety of informal learning spaces for individual or group study.

Our students are taught by a highly dedicated team. Many of our staff and students are recipients of national and international accolades. We provide a collaborative and inspiring community environment which allows staff and students to excel in their chosen area of research and study. We continually strive to ensure the employability of our graduates and to confirm that our courses and strong partnerships with industry prepare our students for successful careers.
