Mathematics and Computer
Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. The Department comprises a well-equipped and up-to-date suite of rooms in one of the main campus buildings, a team of academics with a wide range of research interests and a curriculum which encompasses a diverse set of topics which is both academically stimulating and highly relevant to today’s world. Students in our Department come from all over the world: currently we have students from all five continents represented.
The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science provides an innovative and flexible offering, giving students an opportunity to select from a number of diverse areas of focused study. Another one of the hallmarks of a Hope education is research-informed teaching; this means that besides learning well-established concepts, students are also equipped with the most advanced theories and techniques currently under consideration. This is developed in various ways: firstly, all modules are designed and validated by our tutors who share their knowledge through the design of the content of these modules; secondly, staff who teach you will not only be passionate about their subject, but will themselves have generated new knowledge in their specialist areas, and in many cases have shaped their academic fields of interest. This ensures that our graduates are well equipped to successfully follow fulfilling career paths in many diverse areas of industry and academia.
The Department's research broadly covers the areas of Systems Engineering, Intelligent Systems and Simulation and Modelling. Research projects, related to current research and development areas, are formulated by members of staff to enable students to develop research and development skills in order to gain practical experience of applying the techniques covered in the taught part of the programme to realistic problems.
A university education is about you, the student, supported by an enthusiastic community of professional teaching and research staff. We value our students' views and have student representatives who attend and contribute to our meetings. These views are reflected in our Annual Review Meeting where we review all learning and teaching in the previous year and discuss student feedback.
I encourage you to come and visit Liverpool Hope University and the Department of Computer Science to meet our faculty, our students and tour our laboratories. If you would like to schedule a visit or request more information about the programme, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org My colleagues in the Department of Computer Science and I look forward to meeting you in the future.

Computer Science research at Liverpool Hope University has been identified as a key area of strength and is carried out within the Faculty of Business and Computer Sciences. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008) 60% of the research submitted by the Department of Computer Science here at Liverpool Hope University was judged to be of ‘international recognition and excellence’.
The Mathematics and Computer Science Department supports a wide range of multidisciplinary, high-quality research work and shares with the rest of the University an emphasis on strategic applicable research, while at the same time encouraging research into the disciplines which underpin computer science.
The Department has created an environment for consolidating research effort and accelerating its growth by establishing a dedicated and technologically advanced laboratory, namely, the Intelligent and Distributed Systems (IDS) laboratory creating PhD bursaries for outstanding postgraduate students with demonstrated research potential; and investing in support for staff and PGR research.
The Department has a research group, entitled Intelligent Systems and Applied Informatics (ISAI), which brings together multi-disciplinary research interests and substantial experiences and expertise in the field of Computer Science and Informatics and aims to facilitate research endeavour into Intelligent Systems, Theoretical Computer Science (including Applied Mathematical Analysis), Computer Simulation and Modelling, Data Engineering, Operations Research, Bioinformatics, Software Engineering, Human Computer Interactions (HCI), and Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW).
The Centre for Applicable Mathematics and Systems Science (CAMSS) at Liverpool Hope University serves as a regional centre actively engaging research/KTP bid grants in collaboration with partner institutions.
This research project seeks to contribute to addressing new and emerging challenges (technological, scientific and human factors) in Health Informatics for the purpose of developing effective e-Health Systems and Technologies for the 21st century.
The goal is to develop a context-aware multimedia information system to support collaborative medical decision making in an e-Health environment. The project will seek to apply advanced techniques in context-aware and mobile computing and data mining to the analysis of diverse multimedia-based medical data, integrated with virtual healthcare services, for the purposes of enhancing collaborative medical decision-making, improving patient information management, and delivering healthcare services across geographical barriers.
This research project aims to develop an Affective Interface Feedback System (AIFS) which uses Facial Expressions as a means of communicating user feedback.
Applications are invited from candidates with proven competence, abilities to carry out research, aspiring for a research degree in the areas cognate to Computer Science and Informatics.
For further information on application procedure, and to discuss your research synopsis, please contact Professor Atulya K. Nagar with a copy of your curriculum vitae (CV) and a proposed research plan.
