The School of Computer Science is based on our picturesque waterfront Brayford Pool Campus and benefits from specialist facilities in the £28 million Isaac Newton Building. 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, games computing, VR/AR, data science/ML/AI, and human-computer interaction.
With around 1000 students spread across our range of undergraduate (BSc), integrated Master's (MComp), and postgraduate courses (MSc/PhD), the School offers an exciting, thriving, and expanding environment in which to study and develop. Our undergraduate programmes are accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS) and the University of Lincoln is also affiliated with the Institution of Analysts and Programmers (IAP). Our programmes are designed to prepare graduates with the skills and mind-set that future employers will be 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, nearly two-thirds of our staff’s publications were rated as being of international quality or world-leading. This represents a fantastic achievement, and vindicates our growth strategy and the expertise of our staff and academics.
Our highly-active research centres feature world-leading developments in computer vision, robotics and autonomous systems, and agri-food technologies, with strong links to many industrial collaborators and other universities around the world. We aim to incorporate as much of our research as possible into our taught curriculum and, through our “student as producer” initiative, we provide students with opportunities to get involved in our exciting cutting-edge research activity.
Computer Science at Lincoln is ranked in the top 250 in the world in the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings for 2021.
