Overview

With the ongoing expansion of the internet and its associated applications such as e-commerce, the secure transmission of information over the internet and its constituent systems has become a major issue. The main goal of this course is to prepare professionally-trained graduates for industry.

You will be able to understand the security issues faced by modern connected businesses, and develop secure and reliable computer and network systems. Privacy and data protection will form a key element of the programme.

Our MSc in Cyber Security comprises both advanced computer science and particular developments in security and reliability. The course identifies the objects to be secured, which may be hardware, software or information; the effects of security challenges such as disclosure or destruction; the nature of the challenges, which could be the accidental or deliberate denial of service; and the protection measures, which may be technological or administrative.

This course meets a new and growing demand for specialists in this area. In particular the course is designed for graduates wishing to enhance their undergraduate studies in core computing topics along with advanced study of reliability and security, to equip them for senior positions with responsibility for the IT-based security of an organisation.
