Dr Vassilis Cutsuridis - Programme Leader
Dr Vassilis Cutsuridis is an expert at the interface between computer science and neuroscience. He is broadly interested in reverse engineering how the brain and mind work in health and disease, in order to understand the neural circuits that give rise to mental experience and to extract brain inspired algorithms for the design and development of more efficient intelligent methods and systems for complex data analysis. After a 10-years in the software industry, he returned to academia in 2006 and has held research and teaching positions in Europe, the UK, the US, and China.Academic Staff List Make an Enquiry
The School of Computer Science undertakes a blend of fundamental, applied, and interdisciplinary research. There are particular strengths in robotics, computer data science, and many aspects of human computer interaction and games computing.

There is a range of equipment for loan, including Raspberry Pi devices, smartphones, robots, and virtual reality equipment such as HTC Vive and Oculus Quest. Researchers in the School of Computer Science include Marc Hanheide, Professor of Intelligent Robotics and Interactive Systems, and Nigel Allinson MBE, Distinguished Professor of Image Engineering, who has been supported with a £3.3 million grant from the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council for advances in medical imaging.
The key to a successful programme is to find a research subject that you are passionate about, and a supervisory team that has expertise in that area.

To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February, or May.
In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with your supervisor on an individual basis.
For eligible students, there are more ways than ever before to fund your postgraduate study, whether you want to do a taught or research course. For those wishing to undertake a Master's course, you can apply for a loan as a contribution towards the course and living costs. Loans are also available to those who wish to undertake doctoral study. The University offers a number of scholarships and funded studentships for those interested in postgraduate study. Learn how Master's and PhD loans, scholarships, and studentships can help you fund your studies on our Postgraduate Fees and Funding pages.
This programme provides students with the opportunity to develop a specialism in an area of Computer Science. The study and development of research knowledge may allow students to consolidate their skills and secure positions in research development and the management of technology. Graduates may move into an academic-related roles such as postdoctoral researchers or research assistants. Graduates may also progress to roles in the computing industry.

Our research themes cover a unique set of areas, reflecting our role as a civic university and our aspirations to become thought leaders.
There are opportunites to get involved in exciting research projects by applying for a studentship.
Support is available across the University, offering a friendly, creative, and academically challenging research environment.
At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
