School of Computing and Creative Technologies

Welcome - to a place where interesting things happen.

Head of School Professor Lachlan MacKinnonWelcome to the School of Computing and Creative Technologies (CCT). We are among the international leaders in developing the systems that change the face of the world. We are engaged in shaping the future, and aim to develop people and technologies to meet its challenges.

CCT was formed on 1 August 2002 by merging the School of Computing with the former Division of Engineering, combining expertise in teaching, research and consultancy that will support our ambitious plans for future courses, research and technological development. The School is continuing and enhancing the long-established reputations of its predecessors for innovation and excellent relationships with new advanced technology industries and businesses.

The former School of Computing offered the world's first MSc in Computer Games Technology and Europe's first full undergraduate degree in Computer Games Technology while the Division of Engineering pioneered course developments in Mechatronics and the development of research in Photonics. Together we are continuing to extend the focus on innovation and relevance to cover the creative, knowledge and advanced technology-based industries of the future.

CCT provides students with an opportunity to work at the cutting-edge of subject areas such as computer games, computer arts, software engineering, virtual reality, 3D graphics, network systems and human-computer interaction. We are leaders in bioinformatics, photonics, mechatronics, software engineering, information and computer systems as well as mathematical modelling and statistics. The School has one of the broadest computing and advanced technology teaching portfolios: this is possible because we have over 1000 students currently studying at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The vision for CCT is to create "a place where interesting things happen" for staff, students, collaborators and funders. We have an ambitious vision for the next 5-10 years but to make that happen we need your help. Come and join us as a student; become involved as a visiting lecturer; discuss with us research or consultancy projects or endow a professorship, a laboratory or perhaps a student prize or bursary.

We are more than happy to talk - the future is up to you!

Professor Lachlan MacKinnon
Head of School

The School of Computing and Creative Technologies (CCT) offers a range of courses, research and consultancy services at the forefront of the information technology revolution.

School of Contemporary Sciences

Head of School Professor John PalfreymanWelcome!

At the School of Contemporary Sciences (SCS) we believe that Science has the potential to improve all of our lives. We believe that the science of this new century will be increasingly unified - global issues asking for answers from across the spectrum of knowledge and research, ideas and technologies integrated to provide global solutions.

Our objective is to unlock the wealth of potential in our students and launch our graduates and postgraduates with an education and qualifications that allow them to take on the challenges of the future and lead fulfilling and rewarding careers.

Our objective is also to provide practical solutions. Our commitment to unifying science is seen nowhere more clearly than in our research institutes, where ground-breaking science creates practical results which contribute both to Scotland's scientific success and to its economy.

Welcome to our website. In it you will find information on who we are, what we teach, where our interests lie, and how we are working to answer some of this century's most pressing questions. A website can only tell you so much. I hope that we shall soon be welcoming you to our School as a student or a partner, sharing in our work and in our vision.

Professor John W Palfreyman
Head of School

The School of Contemporary Sciences (SCS) provides full time and part time undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and carries out research across a wide range of science, engineering and technology.

The Dundee Business School

Head of School Professor Mary Malcolm The Dundee Business School (DBS) is Tayside's leading provider of business and management education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

Our multinational and multidisciplinary staff bring their expertise in a wide range of subject areas to the development and delivery of innovative programmes designed to give our students the critical knowledge and key skills required by today's employers.

We have close links with industry, both locally and further afield. In addition to being experts in particular academic fields, our staff are actively engaged in the world of business. Staff also specialise in the areas of executive training and continuing professional development, where their contribution attracts high levels of external recognition amongst the professions. These close links with industry and commerce provide students on some of our programmes with opportunities to undertake periods of professional training and work experience with employers at local, national and international levels.

On this basis we offer a wide range of programme choices, confident that all of our programmes are contemporary and relevant to the challenges faced by businesses and by those who work in them.

It's hardly surprising then that graduates from our popular portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are much sought after by employers seeking the next generation of executives and specialist practitioners.

School of Social and Health Sciences

Welcome to a community of like-minded individuals...

Head of School Professor Steve Olivier My vision for our School is to ensure that we are justifiably seen as a model of good practice. Specifically, I hope to promote a vibrant approach to student centred teaching and learning, and to develop a research programme that focuses on applicability to our curriculum.

The re are particularly good opportunities for collaborative work in the School, and indeed between Schools. My aim is to provide vision, leadership, and drive, to ensure that the School is at the forefront of student-centred educational developments.

Part of my background is in research ethics and forming research teams and I particularly want for the school to facilitate the notion of interdisciplinarity, as expressed in White Space. To me White Space is primarily a state of mind. We view it as an environment that facilitates the generation, exchange and development of ideas in a community of like-minded individuals.

Our school is an exciting place to be. Our events are up to the minute, with first class relevant speakers for our students and staff. Some of the past speakers include: Planning to Win by Frank Hadden, Winning the Games by Louise Martin CBE and Living Dangerously by Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

Within the school there are four specialised divisions. View these pages to find out more about our courses, our staff and what past students have said about us.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.

Professor Steve Olivier
