Our research in systems engineering focuses on methods, tools and techniques for developing and supporting large, distributed, software-intensive systems and their associated operational and organisational processes. Our researchers work in three broad areas:
- Software architecture and processes where we are working on new approaches to software architecture and dynamic evolution through the development of novel programming languages, concepts and technologies, in autonomic systems and process co-design. Key projects in this area include DIAS-MC: Design, Implementation and Adaptation of Sensor Networks through Multi-dimensional Co-design and ASA: Secure Location-Independent Autonomic Storage Architectures .
Cloud computing is an emerging area of research where we are investigating issues such as ad hoc clouds, cloud economics and application migration to the cloud.
We work closely with industry and other academic partners including the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester, York, Oxford, Leeds, Bristol, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh and City University, London.
