Birkbeck, University of London
Computer Science and Information Systems
The research programme leads to either an MPhil or PhD degree. Both research degrees involve individual study of a specific research problem. To be awarded a PhD, your research work must result in a significant original contribution to the field of study (although this is not a requirement of the MPhil). You initially register for an MPhil degree, with transfer to PhD after satisfactorily completing an initial period of study and if it seems likely that your thesis will contain significant original work. Students who successfully complete this MPhil or PhD degree will have gained expert knowledge in their chosen research area and the ability to perform research-led activities in a broader context. In addition, students who successfully complete the PhD degree will have gained the ability to identify and solve complex problems arising in their chosen research area, and will have made a substantial original contribution to this area. Our research focuses on data science, theoretical computer science, algorithms, internet of things, data mining and machine learning, knowledge representation and reasoning, logic and artificial intelligence, semantic web technologies, search engines, mobile and ubiquitous computing, computer vision, bio-inspired computing and social networks.
Our School attracts funding for studentships that ensure researchers of the highest standard can pursue their research with us.
