The Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol is one of the UK's top departments, according to RAE 2008 - a rigorous exercise to assess the quality of research at every university.
70 per cent of our research has been awarded either the top 4* rating, defined as 'world leading', or the 3* rating, classed as 'internationally excellent'. Overall, 95 per cent of our research has been rated to be of international standard.
Professor Nishan Canagarajah, Head of Department, said: "Our vibrant research covers a diverse range of topics from computer architectures to quantum computing and these results confirm that our research will continue to set the agenda across the globe and at home in Bristol."
