Break into the cyber security sector
With our lives increasingly dependent on computer networks and the internet – both of which are potential targets of terrorist and criminal attacks – cyber security is becoming one of the greatest challenges that society is facing today. Graduates who understand the technologies and practices that underpin secure computer systems are in very high demand.
Our online programmes allow you to study around work and home commitments, at different times and locations. This is your Masters degree, on your own terms, in your own time.
- Network and operating system security
- Security risk analysis
- Secure software development – covering security requirement specification, security design, secure coding and security testing
You will develop your expertise through specialist modules and an independent cyber security project. You will also develop your core computer science skills, including:
- Computational thinking
- Computational problem-solving
- Software development
- Broad knowledge of computer science
In the UK alone, over 1.5 million people work in the digital sector, while the number of digital technology jobs has grown at twice the rate of other roles. Graduates of this programme go on to a range of positions in software and web development, IT systems, support and programming. This world-class Russell Group institution and leading Department of Computer Science offer the global reach and industry-relevant content that set our programmes apart.
