Course summary

Course Overview

With the constant threat of terrorism; the growth of cyber-crime and the prevalence of activism, it is really important to ensure that our infrastructures are protected from attack, disruption and damage. Maintaining that protection is challenging and requires those engaged in the analysis, planning and management of it to be highly capable and knowledgeable. The MSc Critical Infrastructure programme is designed to develop high level capability and knowledge in professionals responsible for CI protection.

Critical Infrastructure supports all societies, and encompasses the ‘facilities, systems, sites, information, people, networks and processes, necessary for a country to function and upon which daily life depends. It also includes some functions, sites and organisations which are not critical to the maintenance of essential services, but which need protection due to the potential danger to the public (civil nuclear and chemical sites for example).’(UK Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure - CPNI). Whilst different countries may identify the infrastructure sectors in different ways, all of them will be deemed fundamental to maintenance of societal stability.

What are my career prospects

On successful completion of this award, you will find your employment prospects enhanced and your understanding of the multiple facets of CI security and resilience significantly deepened. If you’re working at manager level you will have gained the requisite knowledge and analytical skills to enable you to perform at a higher management level in your organisation.

Recent graduates or people employed outside the resilience sector are more likely to be able to obtain employment in the component industries; and current employees will be better equipped to seek promotion. All graduates will have developed transferable skills that can be used in a wide range of jobs.
