Informatics is one of seven schools in the College of Science and Engineering, at the University of Edinburgh.
Information about how the School was formed is available in our alumni Edit article, History Makers: Informatics.
The School provides a fertile environment for a wide range of studies focussed on understanding computation in both artificial and natural systems.
With over 450 academic and research staff and over 850 students, the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh is the largest in the UK and one of the largest in Europe.
Our vision at the School of Informatics is to retain and strengthen our position among the top five world-leading centres of research and teaching in computation, information and cognition.
