Department of Computer Science

Industrial Links

Through its internationally recognised research and high quality teaching, the Department of Computer Science has strong and growing links with industry at local, national and international levels.


The Department has a strong record of collaborative research with industry working with companies of all sizes, from large multi-nationals to small start-ups.


Many aspects of the teaching within the Department are informed by industrial developments. Most degree programmes offer the opportunity to tackle work based learning projects with external companies or organisations. The department has also recently introduced a range of degree programme involving a year in industry.


Most companies and organisations rely heavily on computer systems for their core operations. This has created demand for many different specializations, both in the development of software systems, and in the application of such systems to business requirements. A degree in computing from the University of Liverpool provides a superb basis for a career at the cutting edge of information technology and computer systems.

Industrial Liaison Committee

The Industrial Liaison Committee advises the Department on various aspects, including the suitability of its teaching provision, the quality of its research, and the appropriateness of its mechanisms for interacting with industry.
