Cyber attacks make headlines across the globe. Demand for talented computing graduates is outstripping supply, so fine-tune your network and data skills with us, take an optional placement year, and be ready to make your mark in the global cyber security industry. Our new Cambridge-based course is being prepared for National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) certification, while our close links to cyber security institutions such as OWASP and Cyber Crime Prevent bring industry experts into the classroom.Cyber security is a major priority for governments and organisations throughout the world. Never before has the world been so vulnerable to attack. With government and organisations increasing their cyber protection budgets, it’s never been a better time to invest in the industry. We’ll work together to explore how organisations and individuals can take action to protect themselves online from cyber-attacks.In this multi-disciplinary programme, we’ll begin by understanding the fundamentals of cyber crime together with networks and operating systems. You will understand and recognise the threats to an organisation and its infrastructures.

Embedded within the degree is CCNA Routing and Switching and CCNA Security syllabus; adding significant value with industry leading skills and recognition. You can progress your learning with us to full certification of both CCNA Routing and Switching and CCNA Security.

You’ll focus on aspects of risk management, security governance and legal aspects of cyber security as well as related concepts of ethical computing.We encourage you to enrol on our sandwich degree that includes a one-year work placement in the computing industry. This greatly enhances our student's employability as you’ll gain skills in communicating information to higher level enterprise managers, giving you the confidence to present your problem solving solutions and strategic security planning within any organisation.You’ll apply your knowledge and skills in a real-life context, in our specialist labs which are equipped with tools such as Kali Linux, Wireshark, Nmap and Burp Suite.
