Course summary

This course is primarily aimed at STEM graduates. You will be equipped with the fundamental conceptual tools and technologies to address a wide range of issues. You will study the increasing need for security and resilience responses in a globalised world. Security and resilience are increasing in importance due to the technological revolution seen from the first widely available programmable home computer in 1981. This phenomenal growth in the use of technology has prompted the need to be resilient – the ability of a society and its organisations to accommodate stress through the understanding of risk. Security is to mitigate and remove threat to vital societal structures, both physical and psychological. Our course differs significantly to security courses at other universities, where the focus is often policy aspects without a STEM context, or risk analysis with purely numeric solutions. This course sits between the two, offering you the study of science and technology, human activity, policy and implementation. It has been designed in line with the research from the Institute of Security Science and Technology – a cross-faculty institute of engineers and natural scientists. Graduates of this course will be well placed to seek relevant roles in government, academia and industry. You will also be well prepared to pursue entrepreneurial STEM concepts and exploitable ideas. Assessment methods involve the following: Independent project (four months); Oral examinations; Problem sheets; Practical work; Short group projects and written examinations.
