The Departments of Mathematics and Computer Science are part of the Computational Foundry, a world-class centre for computational research, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through Welsh Government. The brand new building of the Computational Foundry provides an ideal environment for doing a PhD. The Computational Foundry has dedicated research labs, runs specialised seminar series, and frequently hosts international guest researchers from academia and industry. The Computational Foundry is involved in large UK- and EU-funded research projects that provide opportunities for additional training and research visits at partner universities. With its 58 research active staff the Computational Foundry is a great place to do a PhD.
