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.

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.
