Course summary

Programme overview

Preserving the security of computers, connected devices and their data becomes more important every year. Mathematics plays a key role in both preventing and modelling security breaches, with many cybersecurity tools and algorithms being based on mathematical ideas.

This postgraduate programme gives you a rigorous introduction to the underpinning theories in mathematics and will equip you with modern data science, analytical and computational tools to implement them.

Developed in collaboration with industry and government, our curriculum includes a broad variety of units, from strands of pure mathematics and data science to computer science and statistics. You will work at scale on large datasets, gaining a qualification and experience in a field that has a recognised skills shortage, which will be attractive to a wide range of employers.

The School of Mathematics has more than doubled in size over the last decade; in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, 87 per cent of our mathematical sciences research was recognised as world-leading or internationally excellent.

Careers

The MSc in Mathematics of Cybersecurity provides exciting career opportunities for mathematics graduates. Cybersecurity expertise is required by a wide variety of government and business sectors, including retail, airlines, telecommunications, defence, utilities, manufacturing, software and financial companies.
