About

Overview

Cyber Security Engineering (CSE) course from WMG University of Warwick is designed for those wishing to develop a career as a cyber security professional, or to take a leading technical role in an organisation critically dependent upon data and information communication technology.

Cyberspace comprises the network of digital devices, used to store, modify and communicate information. It is global. It is interactive. It changes our environment. It extends beyond the Internet. It mediates interaction between individuals and groups. It is pervasive. It is an enabler where context is everything. Much is possible; only some is desirable.

Our world is increasingly shaped by cyberspace. Opportunities for interaction are emerging in ways, only imagined by previous generations. As the influence of cyberspace in our lives continues to grow, so does the associated security risk.

As organisations worldwide harness the opportunities of cyberspace, they create huge demand for cyber security professionals. Cyber security professionals who can function at various strata within an organisation - server room, operations room, board room - you choose. Their task is beguilingly simple: enable the good and prevent the bad.

At the University of Warwick, we specifically designed MSc Cyber Security Engineering to meet GCHQ's demanding requirements ( the UK government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance).

Teaching Style

Tutors adopt their own distinctive style within their taught weeks. Most modules are taught by more than one tutor, which, together with the wide range of guest speakers, gives real breadth of insight into any topic. The external input is especially evident in the Enterprise Cyber Security module where colleagues from IBM make a substantial contribution to the week's activities.

Extra Curricular Activities

Alongside the WMG trips to outside organisations, arranged for many Wednesdays through the year, various workshops and seminars are offered outside taught modules to enrich your experience.

After you Graduate

Graduates can expect rapid career progression in within a wide range of organisations relating to cyber security in a range of roles.
