Overview MSc Cyber Security will prepare you for a successful career in the various roles directly and indirectly connected to the world of computer, network and information security. It will develop your specialist analytical, operational and development skills in both technical and socio-technical areas of cyber security.The primarily objective of MSc Cyber Security is to practise security with an interdisciplinary shared coursework that spans across all security related modules.In semester 1, you play the role of ethical hacker. You are challenged to identify flaws in an server by breaking its crypto components and retrieve the encrypted credit card that belong to the customers of an e-commerce company.In semester 2 you are challenged to analyse network traffic and logs from servers and detect attacks in the company’s network. You need to show proof of concept on what exactly attackers have accomplished. It is essential to trace the attackers and bring them to justice with concrete proofs and reporting. In addition, you must audit the attacked system and propose measures to meet certifications.This course covers core areas of masters level computer science, such as research methods and scientific presentation and analysis skills. It will enable you to specialise in some aspects of the area of cyber security, and engage with researchers to develop your scientific knowledge and skills. We offer options within the programme that allows you to develop your expertise in the socio-technical aspects of security, (such as cyber-crime and security governance), or the more traditional technical aspects (such as cryptography and digital forensics).The course is designed for those who wish to extend their capability for an accelerated early career in cyber security, and who have also completed a first degree in a computing subject (e.g. computer science, business computing) or a numerate subject (e.g. applied mathematics,...

Teaching and Assessment

The MSc in Cyber Security is a one year full-time course. On completion of eight taught modules and an individual project students will be awarded a Master of Science (MSc) degree.

The teaching and learning methods used are such that the levels of both specialisation of content and autonomy of learning increase as students progress through the programme. This progress will be guided by active researchers in cyber security, culminating in an individual project, an original piece of research, conducted largely...
