Overview

Attacks on computer systems and technology are increasing, making cyber security a growing discipline. With a shortage of experts to deal with the threat, graduates with the right skills are likely to be in high demand.

The BSc (Hons) Applied Cyber Security degree is a practical course where you will work with industry to become a highly skilled graduate. Through projects and study, you will learn how to keep computer systems free of interference and find solutions to real-life problems.

You will work directly on ‘live briefs’ from industry, so your training will stay relevant and address current issues and topics. This hands-on approach will also enable you to gain industry contacts and understand what will be expected of you in the workplace when you graduate.

This cyber security course is part of the National Cyber Security Academy, which brings the University, Welsh Government and industry experts together to tackle the skills gap and create experts who can fight against cybercrime.

USW was named Cyber University of the Year at the National Cyber Awards 2019.

Career opportunities

Graduate prospects in cyber security are very strong. Cyber security is one of the major challenges of the 21st century, but there is a shortage of experts. Researchers estimate that 4.5 million cyber experts will be needed by 2019 to meet the growing threat from security attacks. The skills and work ethos you will develop during this specialist cyber degree will make you highly employable and ready to begin a career as a cyber security professional.
