Loughborough University Institutional Repository
Founded in 1974, the Department of Computer Science was among the first university computing departments to be established in Great Britain. The Research School of Informatics was established in December 2004 as part of a new £100M University expansion in a number of areas. It is located in a new building equipped to the highest standards. The school’s mission is research excellence founded upon the strengths of research groups in the departments of Computer Science and Information Science.
In 2003 the Department received the highest available commendation for its teaching quality from the Quality Assurance Agency. In the first national poll of how satisfied final year students were with their degree course - the National Student Survey (2005) - Loughborough topped the table for overall satisfaction and also for learning resources and organisation and management. The survey placed the Department of Computer Science at Loughborough top of the league for the most satisfied computing students among 81 participating computing departments in the country (Times Higher, 23 Sept., 2005).
