Course Summary

A conversion Master's in Computer Science, intended for students with first degrees in a subject other than Computer Science.

Course overview

The field of computer science has produced some of the most significant advances in technology over the last three decades and radically transformed business and industry practices on a global scale. It has applications in almost every area of study.

There is an increasing need for practitioners with an interdisciplinary skillset that includes computer science. Our course provides students with first degrees in another subject the opportunity to develop an interdisciplinary profile in order to meet this need. The course should also be of use to those who have worked in the field whilst holding degrees from other backgrounds.

Why study this course with us?

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.

Our course focuses on the Department of Computer Science’s strengths, providing a cutting-edge curriculum in medical graphics, cybersecurity, robotics and AI, in addition to foundational computer science topics such as software and web development.

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.
