School of Computer Science and Informatics
Built on the foundations of Computer Science, Software Engineering, Computer Security, Business Computing and Mathematics, the School of Computer Science and Informatics (SCSI) provides an environment in which students can draw on academic expertise, high quality research and benefit from industry-standard facilities.
Our students develop a deep understanding of their subjects by learning specialised skills and which prepare them for the world of work. By creating a culture in which innovation and challenging convention are encouraged, students can fully explore their ideas and learn in an organic way.
By supporting our students in gaining relevant work experience and placements to complement our industry accreditations, we increase student employability and help them to stand out in a competitive graduate market.
Over 50 Years of Computing and Technology
We have a long history of fostering new technologies at DMU, a history we recently shared and celebrated. Computing and technology is used throughout all of our courses and delivers creative freedom and experimentation.

Robot club gives students the chance to interact with local school children, teaching them about robotics and using their skills to help the pupils build their own robots.
The club also travels to Vienna to take part in Robot Challenge, where they present a robot they have designed, built and programmed, to take part in set challenges. The competition is also a chance to exchange ideas with robot enthusiasts from around the world.
Last year the team from DMU brought home the trophy, as their robot Cheesoid was crowned the best puck-tracker in the world.
