We have over ten undergraduate teaching laboratories, with over 300 workstations running Windows and Linux. We have specialist facilities including: a games console lab; a mobile programming lab; a multimedia/graphics lab; networking and security/forensics labs; and a Human-Interaction Technology lab. Research work within the department is wide ranging and collaborations and funding for research has been gained from a variety of sources including the Technology Strategy Board, the EPSRC, the US Department of Homeland Security, the EU (Framework 7) and the East Midlands Development Agency. Government funding in the form of several Knowledge Transfer Partnerships has also been received for projects with local businesses. Much of our research is internationally recognised, particularly in the areas of Games for Learning and in Security.
