School of Computing Science
Since 1957, when we became the first university in Scotland to have an electronic computer, Glasgow has built a reputation for the excellence of its Computing Science research and its graduates. Today, our School of Computing Science is one of the foremost in the UK, setting itself the highest standards in research, and research-led learning and teaching.
We have approximately 70 FTE academic staff, support in the region of 130 research students, and deliver teaching to approximately 1,600 undergraduate and postgraduate taught students. Annual research income is more than £3.5 million.
Glasgow Computing is renowned for research and teaching at the intersection of theoretical and applied Computing, and our undergraduate degree programmes are underpinned by a deep theoretical understanding. We are 4th in the Russell Group for graduate career prospects (HESA 2017-18).
