A UK leader for research excellence, the Department of Computer Science offers the world’s first fully online BCS-accredited masters degrees.
The degrees are part of a suite of 100% online programmes – including one-year postgraduate certificates in IT – that empower working professionals around the world to move into or move up in IT-related management careers.
Part of the School of Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Computer Science, the Department works closely with industry partners to develop innovative technologies and applications in fields ranging from mobile computing to artificial intelligence.
All University of Liverpool online masters programmes in IT are accredited by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. Accreditation is a mark of quality, demonstrating that the programme meets the standards set by BCS. Graduates with a BCS-accredited degree are entitled to professional membership of BCS, which is an important part of the criteria for achieving Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status through the Institute. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by countries that have signed international accords.

The 2014 Research Excellence Framework rated 97% of the department’s research as being world-leading or internationally excellent, the highest proportion of any Computer Science department in the UK.
