Computing Science Website Update for December 2015

Urban Sciences Building takes shape – time lapse video now available of building progress

Work has commenced on the construction of Newcastle University’s Urban Sciences Building on Newcastle Science Central. Newcastle University is investing £60 million in the new building, which will house the School of Computing Science and Institute for Sustainability, creating world-class facilities from which to lead international research into digitally enabled urban sustainability.

Read more about the construction from a recent news item and view a time-lapse video of the new Urban Sciences Building being constructed, which is also accessible from the front page of the Computing Sciences website.

We have also updated the banner on the Computing Science website which depicts an artist’s impression of the new building.

New YouTube video highlighting Computing Science & EEE research impact

The University is creating a new campaign to promote the impact of research. The campaign focuses on eight new stories from the University, one of which is about Computing Science and Electrical and Electronic Engineering entitled ‘Powering Industry with Computing Science‘. There is now a YouTube video (on the University YouTube channel) about this story: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRBK4RxmjNI, which is also embedded in our webpage about the impact of this research.

New graphics added to the Computing Science front page

The Computing Science front page (footer) contains two new graphics, 1) The Athena SWAN Bronze Award (to highlight the School’s ECU Athena SWAN Award), 2) a REF2014 logo/graphic to show the School’s number 1 ranking in the REF2014, for research impact.
