Course Summary

About the course

A University of Hertfordshire research degree is an internationally recognised degree signifying high levels of achievement in research. It develops extensive subject expertise and independent research skills which are honed over an extended period, depending on the level of the award. You would undertake a substantial, original research project for the duration of the degree, under the supervision and guidance of two or more academic members of staff. Your supervisory team provides guidance both in the selection of a research topic and in the conduct of the research. You are also supported by attendance at postgraduate seminar series to develop subject specific knowledge and research skills relevant to your field of research. The degree is assessed solely on the basis of the final research output, in the form of a substantial written thesis which must be "defended" in a viva. During the course of the degree, you would be given opportunities to present your work at major conferences and in refereed research publications.

Teaching methods

Research degrees are not taught programmes, however, programmes of supporting studies are a key element. Research in the School of Computer Science is focused upon three core areas of the discipline: algorithms (which includes high performance architectures, languages and compilers, machine learning and theoretical computer science); neural and biological computation (which includes neuro- and systems biology, associative memory, data analysis and genetic regulatory networks) and adaptive systems (which includes artificial intelligence, artificial life, social and emotional developmental robotics, and human-robot interaction). In addition, the School promotes innovative research in the development and use of educational technology.
