Will a MSC computer science conversion program prepare me for PhD

  1. Jan 16, 2012 #1
    hello my fellow physicists. I have a degree in industrial engineering but my true passion is computer science.
    I want to apply to a MSc conversion program in computer science in the UK. Will this prepare me for a PhD?
    is this a bad idea?
    will not having an undergraduate degree in CS be a problem in my future in the field?

    the MsC program is only 1 year long, i am afraid its to quick.


    note: Good universities offer this program such as Imperial college, Manchester university, Bristol, UCL
