Focus on Women in Computer Science

Computer Science, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in general, traditionally suffer from a gender imbalance. In DCS and in the Faculty of Engineering we are happy to be redressing this. Three of our female members of the department, Dr Daniela Romano (senior lecturer), Dr Heidi Christensen (research associate and now lecturer) and Galatia Partheniou (undergraduate student) feature in the Faculty of Engineering's 'wall of women' initiative to highlight women's contribution to engineering. You can learn more about their experiences there.

The Department currently holds the Athena Swan Bronze award, and is working towards silver award status.Athena Swan logo

It goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway, we particularly welcome applications from females to our taught courses, research degrees, and staff vacancies.
