Course summary

This course will start in January 2021. This MSc seeks to address the cyber skills gap, providing you with an advanced knowledge and understanding of cyber security issues. Practical and technically focused, it's ideal for graduates of computing based degrees and related disciplines who wish to deepen and extend their knowledge in this area. Technology is transforming society in all sorts of ways; from the way that assembly lines are controlled to the way we socialize, we depend on computer systems. Increasingly that dependency means that we are vulnerable to cyber attacks which, if successful, could undermine our national institutions and critical infrastructures, steal our personal data or gain access to private exchanges.

Graduates of this master's course will have the knowledge and skills required to take on senior technical roles within cyber security. You could go on to work within a large corporate environment or an SME, taking on a role such as Security Engineer, Information Security Analyst, Information Security Manager or Senior IT Auditor. You could also go on to managerial roles in cyber security or consulting work. You might also continue on to a PhD in a related subject. This course is accredited by the National Cyber Security Centre.
