Overview

This Computer Networking and Cyber Security programme of London Metropolitan University offers you a unique opportunity to combine knowledge of networking technologies with cyber security and gain Cisco accreditation. Such a combination is attractive to employers who increasingly seek graduates in this field.

The growing international consensus is that increased cyber security skills are needed in order to respond to the number and sophistication of digital threats. Governments, corporations and large and small organisations recognise this as a priority, and so are on the lookout for graduates of a high calibre to work in this field.

Our Communications Technology group was one of the first university groups in the UK to be awarded the Cisco Networking Academy accreditation in 1998. Since then, we have been running short and evening courses in Cisco CCNA and CCNP certification. These are two of the most prestigious vocational certifications valued in computer networking and its related industries.

Several of the modules in both the CCNA and CCNP are currently embedded in the Computer Networking and Cyber Security MSc course, allowing you to learn the relevant Cisco certification.

After the course

There is an abundance of sectors and industries that require the skills and knowledge you'll develop on this course. Your skills in networking, network security and cyber security, IT security and computer forensics will be highly valuable. You could become a network engineer, network manager, cyber security consultant, crime and computer forensic and network security professional.
