Computer Science

School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science

Ground-breaking developments in computer science have revolutionised our lives. With a seemingly endless demand for  new generations of computer scientists to develop apps, algorithms  and systems that will continue this revolution, the career prospects  for computer science graduates have never been better. Whatever your prior experience of computing, a degree from the University  of Liverpool will unlock these opportunities for you and kick-start  your career as a computer scientist.

Ben Stafford

Computer Science BSc (Hons)

The lecturers, tutors and technical staff alike, are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Our lecturers teach subjects that relate to their research field and the research that goes on in this department is cutting edge. I really enjoy getting my head around the mathematical ideas taught in lectures, and I will be able to utilise and develop the skills I am learning here in any sector of the IT industry.
