School of Engineering and Computer Science research

This is the School of Engineering and Computer Science. These are the fields where mankind and machines meet. Where they advance together in exciting, innovative directions.

And our vision is backed up by a robust research track record. The latest Research Excellence Framework ranked our computer science outputs among the UK’s top five for research impact. The same assessment classified 75% of our engineering research as ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘world leading’.

From immersive training tech to carbon capture. From digital speech recovery to eco-friendly biofuel production. We’re improving all our tomorrows by finding solutions to the problems of today.


The Hull Immersive Visualization Environment (known as HIVE) provides researchers and industrial clients with an array of advanced visualization, motion capture and computer graphics technology. HIVE's resources include a virtual reality immersive cube, VR theatre and gigapixel wall facilities, plus wearable devices which are all available to our researchers.

Research AREAS

The school's research is focused through eight groups, with additional participation from outside the school. These focal areas of research are as follows ...


Research in the Faculty of Science and Engineering

From understanding how the Earth is responding to climate change to developing miniaturised platforms for chemical synthesis, clinical diagnostics and environmental analysis, our research addresses real-world problems.
