Research Group web sites


For research groups in the Department, and others wanting to produce group pages in the University house style, the recommended solution is to use the University's Falcon service. This provides a supported content management service, with University-style templates and straightforward editing that does not require technical skills or experience with HTML. There are also training courses available in creating sites using the Falcon system.

For more information about Falcon and how to use it, see the University's Falcon web pages and the Falcon support site. Please also read the guidelines for Engineering groups using Falcon.

Group sites hosted within Engineering

Those Divisions and research groups running their own servers may have their own sites hosted within the Engineering Department. Divisional and group computing staff will be able to advise on those facilities and their use.

Some research groups have previously had their sites hosted on central Departmental servers. As described above, the recommendation for any new sites is that they use Falcon. However, the previously offered service is still maintained for those existing sites that wish to continue to use it. Information about how to access and maintain those sites is available here.
