Description

Networked computers run our world. From homes to hospitals, airports to banks and all stops in between, everything is connected – but these systems are susceptible to infiltration and attack. Study our MSc Cyber Security and you’ll gain the expertise to become part of the defence.

By learning to design, implement and manage computer-based systems security, you’ll develop the skills and confidence to succeed in a wide range of cyber-security roles, including security designer, ethical hacker, and digital forensics officer.

Starting with the fundamentals, you’ll gain a broad understanding of the different levels of computer and network security. As you progress, you’ll explore both the technical aspects and the logistics of planning and implementing network security management. You’ll also learn how to investigate systems after a breach.
