About

The Informatics - ICSA - Computer Architecture, Compilation and System Software, Networks and Communication programme offered by The University of Edinburgh will provide you with academic resources and industry links that are among the best in the world.

Overview

Studying the Informatics - ICSA - Computer Architecture, Compilation and System Software, Networks and Communication programme offered by The University of Edinburgh, you’ll be supported in your research by award-winning academic staff – including four Fellows of the Royal Academy of Engineering. They and other research colleagues have contributed to what is an enviable publications portfolio, featuring some of the most prestigious publications in the field.

You’ll graduate with more than an intensive knowledge of your field: you’ll also have established academic and personal links that will last a lifetime.

We are home to the UK’s largest group of PhD researchers in the field, and host a Centre of Excellence in partnership with ARM, the world’s largest microprocessor intellectual property provider. We are also a member of the European Network of Excellence on High Performance and Embedded Architecture and Compilation.

While the scope for research is wide, each area is underpinned by our fundamental aims:

  • to extend understanding of existing systems
  • to improve current systems
  • to develop new architecture and engineering methods

Career opportunities:

Our students see their degrees as a launchpad for their careers, and many have established themselves as world-class researchers and developers. By joining their ranks, you will be able to make your mark on the next generation of technological innovations.

Academic and business employers actively recruit ICSA graduates, many of whom are now designing the next generation of products for major software developers, or taking the lead in other entrepreneurial ventures.
