Welcome to the School of Computer Science
The School of Computer Science is based on our picturesque waterfront campus in high-quality, newly-developed facilities. The School holds a broad range of expertise in Computing Technologies and Information Systems, including specialisms in robotics and autonomous systems, computer vision and image engineering, medical applications of technology, social computing, games computing, cultural computing and business computing.
Teaching and Learning
The 2016 National Student Survey (NSS) put us in the top 20% nationally against all UK university computing departments for overall student satisfaction. The NSS is a survey of all final year students as they complete their degree and reflect on their time at the University of Lincoln, and it is considered an independent indicator of their satisfaction with our institution and learning experience. Our overall ranking is a fantastic achievement for a relatively new School and we will continue to strive to improve even further!
With around 800 students spread across our range of undergraduate (BSc), integrated master's (MComp) and postgraduate (MSc, PhD) courses, the School offers an exciting, thriving and expanding environment in which to study and develop. Both the British Computer Society and the Institution of Analysts and Programmers accredit our taught programmes, which ensure our graduates are prepared with the skills and mindset that future employers are seeking.
The research carried out by students and academics in the School of Computer Science is ground-breaking. In the most recent external Research Assessment carried out nearly two-thirds of our staff’s publications were rated as being of “international quality” or “world leading”. That is another fantastic achievement for a relatively new school, and it clearly vindicates our strategy to accommodate a rapid growth supported through the expertise of our staff and academics.
Our highly-active research centres feature world-leading developments in computer vision and in robotics and autonomous systems. We also have strong links to many industrial collaborators and other universities around the world. We always try to incorporate our research findings into our taught curriculum wherever possible and under the banner of “student as producer” we give all students opportunities to get involved in this cutting-edge and exciting work.
We believe all of this makes the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln a truly great and exciting place to study and develop, and we look forward to working with you towards the next stages of your life.

New home for Computer Science:
The University is investing in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects by creating the Isaac Newton Building.
Take a look inside our upcoming Isaac Newton Building, home to the Schools of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics & Physics and the University's growing partnership with Siemens, to be completed early 2017:
