Course summary

This course equips students with the fundamental skills and knowledge necessary to quickly adopt the emerging technologies and concepts in this fast changing field. Students also learn the professional and business skills, techniques and ways of thinking needed to be able to align technical security requirements with business needs. Our dedicated security laboratory means that students have ample opportunities to put the skills learnt into practice – from auditing an existing network and IT system for security issues, to analysing malware and designing and implementing secure software. Training for several professional networking qualifications, operated under the Cisco Networking Academy programme, is an optional part of this degree programme. Obtaining these qualifications, which are recognised worldwide, represents an important step towards a lucrative career as a networking professional. On registering for training under the networking academy scheme you will be given access to extensive, professionally developed on-line learning facilities, including network simulation tools, testing and feedback systems. The training is incorporated as an optional integral component of the degree course. It is no longer acceptable to develop, and deploy, IT systems and software without significant consideration of security issues and the UK Government's National Security Council identifies cyber-attack as one of the 4 highest priority risks for the UK. In particular, they highlight the lack of computer science graduates, with the necessary skills in cyber security, as a serious concern for both government and industry, with demand far outstripping supply. Our degree in Computer Science for Cyber Security is designed to help address this need. Potential careers in this area include careers such as IT security professionals, penetration testers, digital forensic investigators, software developers, systems engineers, technical analysts, IT managers, and consultants.
