About us

In the School of Computing, Electronics and Mathematics we recognise the importance of developing a strong practical insight into the subject area of a degree, as well as a solid theoretical foundation.

We achieve this through an activity led learning approach, where academic knowledge is cemented by practical real world examples the students can explore on their own and in groups.

The School benefits from world class research groups in applied mathematics, wireless sensors, serious games and applied computing, all of which feed into our teaching and provide students with an opportunity to work on cutting edge problems.

Our teaching covers traditional courses such as Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mathematics, Computing and Computer Science, but also incorporates more specialised teaching such as Forensic Computing, Games Technology, Ethical Hacking and Network Security.

Courses exist and are being developed to benefit from the synergy between the different subject areas brought together in the School. All of our courses are accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, British Computing Society or Institution of Mathematics and its Applications, and are supported by a range of specialist labs and equipment.

Our blended learning methods are led and inspired by our active academic researchers, with strong research in applied mathematics, advanced computing, big data, wireless sensing, robotics and energy harvesting.

We’re also proud to support and be supported by the award-winning sigma Mathematics and Statistics Support Centre, which provides maths and stats support to students and staff across the University. School staff are also active in providing support through the Programming Support Centre and subject support sessions.
