List of Computer Science Departments in the UK

The following is a list of Computer Science Departments in the UK, its possible that one or two may be missing, links may also change from time to time, but hopefully the list below is fairly comprehensive. If you know of any other departmental website in the UK relating to computing that isn’t listed then please leave a comment.

I organise a series of research seminars on a regular basis, hence its useful to have a list of CS departments\schools readily at had when looking for prospective speakers. Hopefully you will find the list useful as well.

You may wish to note that a list of computer science departments also exists on (wikipedia) most of them being from America.

Visit to BP HIVE Aberdeen 17th Oct 2014

Today I took a group of two dozen, mainly studying for an MSc in IT for Oil & Gas on a visit BP’s HIVE – Highly Immersive Virtual Environment. The visit went through a number of presentations & demos highlighting how the HIVE is used. The visit took roughly two hours – commencing just after 14:00 and finishing around 16:15.

It began with an introduction to the HIVE and a visualization plot of all the oil fields located mainly in the north and east of the UK. One outlier happened to be in the south – the only site that wasn’t off shore. After that we were presented with some 3D models that necessitated the use of 3D shutter glasses. Given the images on screen were blurry without glasses I didn’t take any images of the simulation. The models showed one oil field in particular and the structure of the various layers below the sea bed. It also displayed a number of test drilling sites and how the pipe work was implemented to facilitate extraction.

Following on from the 3D visualization we saw a number of other models depicting the contours of some areas and how various pipes were positioned across the field. After that we say a 3D model of a sea going vessel capable of operating way out at sea & were able to explore from bow to stern. We also saw some models of Christmas Trees dotted along the sea floor and the flexible pipe work infrastructure going right up to the waters surface.

Towards the end of the talks we were presented with a more modern visualisation making use of 360 degree panoramic photography and how it may be used to identify parts that needed work / maintenance carried out. A good deal of discussion also occurred on the use of technology in the oil and gas sector with quite an emphasis on how technologies such as Wi-Fi, RFID & mobile devices can greatly assist in reducing costs and ensuring work is carried out correctly.

Finally before leaving their was time for one more group photo before departing. A big word of thanks to those who presented the presentation / demos / visualizations.
