The Schools of Engineering and of Computer Science and Statistics have an international reputation as centres of excellence in networks and distributed systems. The cradle of such successful companies as IONA Technologies (a world-leading supplier of distributed object technology) and EUnet Ireland (Ireland’s first Internet Service Provider), we have attracted very large amounts in funding for our research activities in this area in recent years. Researchers within these schools continue to work closely with major indigenous and international companies in the field. School research groups working in this area include:
- The Networks and Telecommunications Research Group
- The Distributed Systems Group
- The Knowledge and Data Engineering Group
