The Department of Computing at Imperial College London has leading research groups in Programming Languages, Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, Data Science, Theory and Algorithms, and Visual Computing. Many groups and members of our research staff are at the forefront of research in their respective fields. Our modules are delivered by excellent researchers; 56% of the research in the Department of Computing ranked at 4*, for “Quality that is world-leading in terms of originality, significance, and rigor.” in the last Research Excellence Framework exercise. The department has many collaborations with other faculties at Imperial, and leading international institutions, as well as with industry.

We also house dedicated research centers, including the Dyson Robotics Lab, the Data Science Institute, the Centre for Integrative Systems Biology and Bioinformatics, the Hamlyn Centre for Medical Image Computing and Robotics, and more.

Graduates the on to work in leading companies as Microsoft, Amazon, DeepMind, Facebook, Google, and Twitter; many also progress to Ph.D. research at Imperial and elsewhere. A graduate of the department recently had his company valued at $1 billion, and two other graduates sold their AI startup to Twitter for $150 million.

Throughout the year, leading companies visit the department to give presentations on the Applications of Computing in the Industry. These are on a broad range of industrially-relevant topics including AI, Data Science, Programming Languages, Natural Language Processing, and Software Engineering. We pride ourselves in presenting a great opportunity to learn about the relevance and application of what you are studying and speak directly with people working on industrial applications.  We also have dedicated extracurricular tutorials and seminars on computing from guest speakers.
