What will I learn?

Multimedia combines content such as sound, images and graphics to make applications dynamic in areas such as education, entertainment, social networking and telemedicine. The key research challenges lie in managing complex multimedia objects and extending them into three dimensions with the capacity for real-time interaction. Our researchers focus on three-dimensional computer graphic modelling and rendering, distributed three-dimensional graphics, image and video quality enhancement, content-based image retrieval, and multi-sensor data and motion analysis.

The Department of Computing has established a solid foundation in Algorithm and Theory, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, Big Data Analytics, Cyber Security and Privacy, Networking and Mobile Computing, and System Modelling and Software Engineering.

Our students’ cutting-edge research is supported by enthusiastic faculty members and support staff who ensure that the Department provides them with a positive and nurturing academic environment.

The Department also ensures that all research students have opportunities to enrich their research experience through research exchange visits, attendance at leading international conferences and participation in global competitions and departmental projects.

The Department’s global network crosses disciplines and bridges industries, offering our students ample career opportunities, resources and access to research funding.
