Informatics

As a research student, you are associated with one or more research groups in the Department of Informatics and allocated a computer and working area in comfortable shared offices. You have full access to your research group's specialist facilities and laboratories. The Department is engaged in a wide range of research, covering many areas of artificial intelligence, computer science and cognitive science. We can supervise in all areas of faculty specialism. Applicants wishing to pursue interdisciplinary research involving artificial intelligence (AI), including computational philosophy of mind or AI of biology, may apply to do research degrees in cognitive science. Students are assigned 2 supervisors for the duration of their studies; they meet their primary supervisor regularly on an informal basis, and for a documented review meeting every month. A formal review of progress is conducted each year. Students admitted to research courses take a Research Skills Development module in their first 2 terms, which is specifically designed for students in the School of Engineering and Informatics. In addition, specific MSc modules may be recommended to enhance your subject knowledge where necessary.
