Our proximity to the M4 Corridor - sometimes described as England's 'Silicon Valley' - helps us maintain active collaboration with large public and private organisations.
Our aim is to enhance research, knowledge transfer, consultancy and training, nationally and internationally.
We manage knowledge transfer projects with ARC Technology Ltd and previously Siemens.
Our researchers have been involved with the definition of Unified Modelling Language (UML) and the development of commercial modelling tools used by international banks and aerospace companies.
Previous collaborative partners our staff have worked with include:
- British Aerospace
Our research projects have been funded by bodies such as the EU’s Asia ITC programme, the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research council (EPSRC), the UK’s Joint Information Systems committee (JISC) and the Technology Strategy Board (TSB).
In externally funded research projects we work in collaboration with prestigious universities across the world, including:
- University of Nairobi
- University of Uppsala (Sweden)
- University of Limerick (Ireland)
- Dalian Maritime University (China)
- Indian Institute of Technology (India).
We also work with the British Computer Society, and on projects with the Computer Society of India and China’s Software and Integrated Circuit Platform (CSIP).
