Course summary

Course Overview

The development and maintenance of effective security management has a pivotal role to play in all areas of the aviation sector - with a continually evolving and dynamic threat and risk landscape bringing constant and moving challenges.

In cooperation with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), this MSc in Aviation Security allows you to explore and develop theories and methodologies to mitigate these risks, and consider and analyse the future of safe and secure aviation. By working together, Bucks New University and ICAO aim to realise the needs of the aviation industry for qualified and knowledgeable aviation security professionals through the creation and promotion of learning that is accessible by mature professionals and the next generation.

This master’s is for anyone whose role involves ensuring security protection is incorporated into aviation operations, or those aspiring to move into this work. You may also be looking to build on your experience and skills in general security management or aviation, and want to specialise.

COURSE DETAILS

The course draws on knowledge from a broad range of academic disciplines that need to come together, and be considered, in an aviation security context.

We will look at everything from threats, risks and challenges, to impact perspectives, and the multiple organisations, agencies and air travel stakeholders involved. We will explore topics such as aviation and organisational resilience, while also analysing the context and future of secure and safe aviation.

The programme culminates in you completing a research dissertation or project looking at issues that most interest you relating to aviation security, both now and in the future.

By the end of the course, you will have:

  • a master’s level qualification relevant to your professional development
  • high level knowledge that gives you professional recognition in this field
  • lifelong skills and, particularly, the ability to analyse and evaluate operational and strategic contexts
  • the skills to apply academic theory and principles in a business environment.

What are my career prospects?

By the end of the programme, you will be well placed to consider, or further develop, your employment in the aviation and security industries. You could work as a practitioner, manager or, in the wider context, as a consultant or general security adviser to the sector. Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.
