The high demand for cryptography specialists in the business and technology industries offers defined and fulfilling career opportunities and facilitates entry into roles that require a master’s specialism.
Whether you want to understand the potential of blockchain or examine how your identity and data is protected online, our Cryptography course at London Metropolitan University will give you the tools to examine and learn about information security in the digital age.
Cryptography is based on mathematical theory and computer science. It is the construction and analysis of protocols that prevent third parties or the public from reading private messages. Information security underpinned by cryptographic techniques is key to life in the digital age, with social media and e-commerce increasingly reliant on strong algorithms to protect sensitive personal data. This course is, therefore, an excellent starting point if you want to have a career in developing and applying information security algorithms.
After the course
Cryptography applies in many areas of industry where extensive data processing, electronic communications or software development takes place. As a result, this cryptography qualification will provide wider employment opportunities than a traditional computer, software or network engineering degree.
Knowledge of cryptographic solutions will enhance your employment opportunities with large businesses, including online retailers, banks and companies in the financial technology industry, corporate enterprises, electronic entertainment vendors and network service providers.
