The modules in the postgraduate cyber security programme are for professional security specialists, computer specialists, engineers, technical managers and scientists who need to develop or update their skills and knowledge in the area of cyber security and gain a recognised qualification to develop their careers. They have been developed to combine theoretical and practical aspects of cyber security, to enable you to become an effective professional in the industry.
In addition, they aim to encourage you, through the provision of appropriate educational activities, to develop study and transferable skills applicable to your employment and your continuing professional development.
As our current computing postgraduate degrees are accredited by the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, and have been accorded the highest levels of recognition in the last four accreditation cycles, we aim to submit the MSc in Cyber Security for accreditation at the earliest opportunity. We will also be seeking, National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) accreditation.
