We promote a vibrant and supportive research environment.
Around 38 postgraduate students engage in projects and are supervised by experienced research fellows and senior staff according to their research thesis plan. In addition to centrally-administered annual training and development, the Centre for Secure, Intelligent and Usable Systems utilises its industry partners and government links to further the student experience, skills, knowledge and understanding.
We enjoy welcoming visiting researchers to spend time collaborating with us; this can vary from a week at a time to extended visits for longer projects.
The Centre for Secure, Intelligent and Usable Systems benefits from access to state-of-the-art facilities, including research labs in both Watts and Cockcroft buildings. In Watts, members are housed in a newly refurbished suite, including two specialist computer labs. In Cockcroft, resources include two usability suites with state-of-the-art equipment alongside focus group space. These facilities are also used by outside agencies, most recently the Environment Agency, to evaluate their software.
We actively seek opportunities to work with organisations and individuals who can benefit from our facilities and expertise.
