The Department of Computer Science and Information Systems is part of the School of Computer Science, Mathematics and Business Computing that was set up in 1985 and has grown considerably over the years, reflecting the increase in the need for qualified experts in computing. The Department has close links with industry and major computer software companies.
The friendliness and enthusiasm of the staff and students within the School create a stimulating learning and working environment.
Our links with industry are extremely beneficial to students beyond graduation. In particular, during the second year work-based and experiential learning placement students are given the opportunity to work directly with real industry placements or as part of “experiential” study. By enhancing our students’ employability in this way, helping develop their individual portfolios and enabling links with industry professionals we are ensuring our Comupter Science and Information Systems graduates are equipped with the necessary academic, professional and transferable expertise.
The Department is housed in purpose-equipped teaching facilities on the Chester campus. The attractive Chester Campus is close to the centre of the safe and historic City of Chester but is also near to the Chester Business Park where many large organisations are based.
The University of Chester has excellent student accommodation, sports and recreation facilities on or very close to the campus.
