Welcome to the Department of Computer Science.

UCL Computer Science department is a global leader in research in experimental computer science. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) evaluation UCL was ranked in first place for Computer Science, out of 89 Universities assessed, and considerably ahead of other Institutions. 61% of its research work is rated as world-leading (the highest possible category) and 96% of its research work is rated as internationally excellent.

We are an open, friendly department, open to ideas and open to people. We ask questions and we challenge ideas. We believe in our subject and in its potential. Our degree programmes recognise the ever-increasing importance of computer systems in fields such as commerce, industry, government and science. We offer Bachelor’s and Master’s taught degrees, and postgraduate research qualifications within all of our research interests. Throughout its history the department has had a big impact on the European computing landscape – notably, establishing the first connection to the precursor of the Internet outside the United States. We continue to create innovative technologies that change lives with computers.
