Computing and Mathematics at Derby has a bold vision to deliver an outstanding learning experience to our students, further develop and expand our research capacity and increase our industry engagement in the region and beyond to fulfil targets for Research Excellence Framework and Knowledge Exchange Framework as well as providing the best opportunities to our graduates. The discipline area is located in the University’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) annex in Markeaton Street, Derby, where staff offices and lab facilities are co-located. Key investments in the last few years include dedicated data science facilities, a data visualisation ‘data cave’ and a Virtual Reality (VR) lab as well as mobile VR equipment for teaching and research. The discipline area is actively engaged in knowledge exchange projects and an active applied research agenda.
