The Computing Science (CS) Department develops techniques that draw out the efficiency, insight and intelligence in computing to empower scientific discovery and technological advances over a wide spectrum of real-life applications. The capabilities offered by the CS Department can enhance the performance of software codes, scale up computing throughput of applications, process of a wide variety of data types, provide value and insight into data, create intelligent systems that can interact in a socially-appropriate manner, and provide methods for understanding complex interactions between systems.
The CS Department consists of six Capability Groups that oversees the several key research areas. In addition, several programmes tackle application areas through various cross-cutting technologies derived from the different capability groups.
