The ICS faculty consists of a set of 13 faculty members, spanning 4 specialisations: Networking, Software Engineering, Computer Science, and Information Systems. The ICS faculty is actively engaged in research, as is evidenced by a significant number of publications in 2012 (approximately 50 publications), PhD/MSc student supervision, and conference management participation. The ICS faculty has demonstrated a strong desire to expand its emphasis on research. In order to enhance the research output of our faculty, the ICS faculty has formulated a research plan which will be described in detail in this report, which forms the basis of a research strategic plan that provides a framework for the next 3 years. Currently, the following clusters have been tentatively identified:
- Biometrics
- Software engineering metrics
- Data mining and data warehousing
- Network simulation platforms
