As a UK Top 10 Department (Complete University Guide 2023) we are committed to high quality teaching and research.
Computer Science increased excellence in all areas of research since the last research assessment exercise, moving 6 places up the ranking to the 20th position for REF 2021. See more information at REF 2021 Result - Durham University.
We are located in the beautiful city of Durham and have recently moved into a brand new purpose built building along with the Department of Mathematical Sciences.
We are proud of the emphasis we place on equality, diversity and inclusion and are working hard to make our department the no.1 University in the UK for women to study Computer Science.
A degree in Computer Science from Durham will allow you to become a driver of change in modern society as we give you both a deep understanding of the fundamentals of computation and a knowledge of the emerging technologies.
Working with academics who are leading cutting-edge research will give you first-hand experience of top quality projects.
