Research Activity

Software Engineering (SE) has been a significant research theme at Lancaster since 1986.

In the 2010s, our high-impact research spans the range from tool development to theoretical work and focuses on several SE themes. These include software product lines, model-driven engineering (MDE), requirements engineering (RE), self-adaptive, cloud-based and service-oriented systems, and the challenges posed by (amongst others) social computing and e-health.
