The field of computer science has produced some of the most significant advances in modern technology over the last three decades and radically transformed business and industry practices on a global scale. There is a profound need for postgraduate-level practitioners in this discipline.

Why Study Advanced Computer Science with us?

Taught at our Thornton Science Park near Chester, this course focuses on the Department of Computer Science’s strengths, providing a cutting-edge curriculum in medical graphics, data visualisation, cybersecurity, discrete optimisation and image processing, in addition to core computer science topics such as algorithm design.

There is also a monthly seminar programme in which leading experts present recent findings and introduce contemporary developments in the above and other areas.

The Department’s commitment to part-time, evening delivery (as an additional alternative to full-time delivery) is particularly attractive to those in employment wishing to gain a postgraduate qualification. This provision is rare among competing institutions and one that has been successfully delivered at Chester for many years.

What will I learn?

The course has a core theme addressing advanced issues in software and algorithmic development, which will equip you to deal with complex problems using a wide range of contemporary techniques. Additionally, the development of a rigorous approach to research and original enquiry will be fostered in our Research Methods and Research Dissertation modules.

Optional modules cover a range of applied topics where the Department has expertise, including data visualisation, virtual reality, computer vision and cybersecurity.

How will I be taught?

The course will be delivered at our modern facilities at Thornton Science Park, which include a VR laboratory, high performance computing facility and cybersecurity laboratories.

You will be taught using a mixture of lectures, workshops, seminars and case studies.
There are 7½ contact hours per week, and you will be expected to undertake 30 hours of private study per week.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment takes place using roughly 30% exams and 70% coursework, although the precise ratio depends on module choices.
