School of Science
The Department of Computer Science has a dynamic research culture with an international reputation. Our research ranges from underlying mathematical theory to the practical creation and operation of networked systems. The Department’s research continues to have a positive impact in such diverse areas as wireless communications, multimedia, logistics, healthcare, the emergency services, transport, surveillance and the environment, amongst others. The department’s research is organised under three groups:
- Vision, Imaging and Autonomous Systems
- Internet Systems and Network Security
- Theory and Applications of Formal Systems
The Department of Chemistry at Loughborough University currently comprises 26 research active members of academic staff, together with a number of visiting/Emeritus academics and some 20 members of technical, secretarial and support staff. Two of the four different research centres contribute to the research of the CDT.
The energy research laboratory consolidates a long established research specialism within the department. One of our notable successes has been the spin-out company Intelligent Energy, and our research into the underpinning science of energy capture, conversion and storage continues unabated.
The Centre for Analytical Science (CAS), launched in March 2008, provides a focus for analytical research and educational activities in the Department of Chemistry. Our research is focused on the development and application of new measurement systems and an important aspect of the work in CAS is the translation of advanced measurements into new research areas. Our objective is to understand and discern what fellow researchers would like to know and then to devise, develop or discover the appropriate measurement systems.
