The UCL Department of Computer Science
In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) evaluation UCL was ranked in first place for Computer Science, out of 89 Universities assessed, and considerably ahead of other Institutions. 61% of its research work is rated as world-leading (the highest possible category) and 96% of its research work is rated as internationally excellent.
UCL researchers in Computer Science and Informatics received a ‘grade point average’ of 3.57 (out of 4) and submitted over 70 staff to be assessed in REF2014. UCL Computer Science has made seminal contributions across the full range of its core strengths and associated 11 research groups and 8 centres, including the Centre for Health Informatics & Multiprofessional Education (CHIME), Biomedical Physics & Biochemical Engineering, and the Centre for Medical Image Computing (CMIC).

Andrea Bittau, 1983-2017
It is with great sorrow that we report the death of Andrea Bittau, who earned his BSc and PhD degrees at UCL Computer Science, and was a much respected student and colleague across the department. An obituary can be found here. Memories of Andrea can be added by sending them to Steve Marchant.
To honor and remember Andrea’s life, and his talent and passion for computer systems research, the Andrea Bittau Memorial Scholarship has been established, which will support a PhD student at UCL Computer Science. Learn more about the memorial scholarship here.
