Summary

Secure your future career with our Computer Science (Computer Networks and Security) MSc. You’ll become a highly trained networking/security professional with the ability to adapt to the ever-changing corporate network environment.

In the digitally connected world, companies are reliant on their information networks for critical storage, distribution and processing. These networks need constant maintenance to keep them operational, resilient and efficient - this is where you come in.

At Staffordshire University, we’ll give you the skills that you need to progress in your future career as a network specialist. These skills aren’t limited to practical skills either, we include an in-depth theoretical knowledge of security policies and mitigation techniques, to ensure you are always one step ahead of the game.

We'll prepare you for your Cisco CCNP qualification, as well as giving you opportunities to network with our contacts and guest speakers from our industry partners and collaborators. Many of these offer work shadowing or short work experience opportunities where you will be able to enhance your employability, which may lead to further graduate prospects.

If you choose to leave before completing the full 180 credit MSc course, you are entitled to a lower award if you have achieved pass grades for the necessary credits. This would be 60 taught module credits for a Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) or 120 taught module credits for a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip).

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MSc Computer Science (Computer Networks and Security).

Assessment

There are two types of assessments: practice (also called formative) or formal (also called summative).

Practice assessments do not count towards your final mark. These are your chance to test your understanding and learn how to improve for the real thing.

You’ll have formal assessments, typically at the end of each module. These could include essays, exams, practical assessments or portfolios.

If you hold a CCNP qualification or higher (other vendor qualifications accepted to), some modules might be accredited through RPL.

Careers

After completing the Computer Networks and Security MSc, you’ll be equipped to work in the following roles:

  • Network security specialist
  • Network security analyst
  • Network consultant
  • Network infrastructure engineer
  • Network security operations

Eager for more knowledge? Upon completion, you’ll be ideally placed for further academic study at PhD level.
