University of St Andrews
Our research focuses on core themes of theoretical and practical computer science: Artificial intelligence and symbolic computation including constraint programming, computational algebra and computational logic and natural language processing, image processing and robotics; Networked and distributed systems including distributed and autonomic systems, middleware, network design and architecture, wireless and sensor networks, performance measurement and distributed learning environments. Systems engineering including software engineering, system dependability, social informatics and functional programming. Human Computer Interaction including pervasive and ubiquitous computing, input and output technologies, intelligent interactive systems and visualisation.
Good relevant UK Honours degree, 2.1 or above or equivalent, GPA (3.6 or above); experience is also taken into consideration. All applicants whose 1st language is not English, require IELTS 7.0, or equivalent; conditional offers are often made to students with IELTS 6.0, 6.5, or equivalent, when conditions can be met by improving English test score, or taking part in the University's language courses.
Modules include: Constraint programming, and search; intelligent computation; natural language, and music processing; computational logic; computational algebra sensor networks; autonomic, distributed file systems; high speed networking; monitoring, measurement, and performance; technology enhanced learning; video fingerprinting for digital assets management; denial of service (DOS) defence; covert channels in communication networks; network architectures for mobile systems; novel middleware systems architecture; software architectures; dependability, and security; social informatics; vision, and graphics; functional programming, types, and foundations of programming.
MPhil: Coursework in year 1 followed by a 40,000-word dissertation completed over a period of 15 months. PhD: An 80,000-word thesis completed after 3 to 3.5 years.
The School offers a limited number of research studentships to very well-qualified applicants for PhD degrees. These are primarily EPSRC studentships but a small number of School-funded studentships may also be available.Also available: entrant accommodation bursary; recent graduate discount; Santander 600 scholarships; Thomas and Margaret Roddan Trust bursary.
