Computing Science and Mathematics

We are committed to internationally excellent research in Computing Science and Mathematics. Our research vision is to investigate novel and effective approaches to dynamic and uncertain real world problems in complex systems and environments by exploring inter-disciplinary synergies between Computer Science, Mathematics, Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Management. This requires focussed collaboration with leading academics in other disciplines and other universities. Close engagement with key stakeholders in industry and the public sector also plays a critical role in our research strategy. We aim to push the boundaries of the levels of complexity that we are able to model and handle.


Research is conducted within three groups:

  • CHORDS (Computational-Heuristics, Operations Research and Decision-Support)
  • CogComp (Cognitive Computation)
  • MACS (Modelling and Analysis of Complex Systems)

Please go to the Research Groups page for further details. Computing Science is part of the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) Scotland-wide pooling initiative in research and knowledge exchange. We provide a stimulating and lively environment for postgraduate students, research fellows and visitors on one of the most beautiful campuses in the world. We offer many opportunities for postgraduate study at both masters and doctoral level
