The Department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies combines the rigour of computer science with a deep understanding of the impact of digital technology and engagement with the challenges and opportunities it presents. Part of our work focuses on user-centred approaches to IT and technology - ensuring that technology meets the needs of those for whom it is intended.
Our postgraduate courses are flexibly structured and allow for both full-time and part-time study. This flexibility caters for those who wish to continue their professional development whilst remaining in full-time employment, as well as for those looking to further their qualifications on a full-time basis. Some modules may also be taken as short courses and our MSc Software Engineering is available entirely by distance learning.
We adopt a partnership and collaboration approach with regard to teaching and learning, research and knowledge exchange, professional development and international work and so this could be the start of many invaluable connections.
Through links that UWE has forged with institutions all over the world, staff and students come to UWE from countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and North America. This strong multicultural mix, particularly at postgraduate level, makes for an interesting and lively student experience.
We conduct world class research in unconventional computing, large scale distributed systems, data processing and management and embedded systems. Much of our research is conducted in collaboration with industry and academia, including CERN.
There are over 50 academic staff based in the Department in areas such computer science, forensic computing, information management, web design and development, digital media, computer security, music technology, games technology, experience design and software engineering. We offer a diverse range of degree programmes, short courses, professional development opportunities, consultancy and international partnerships to meet the needs of both society and business today.
