Summary

Overview

Technology and computer systems are becoming ever more integrated with our day-to-day lives, meaning the protection of all the data and information they contain is paramount. With many organisations and businesses now considering the protection of online information a critical business issue, there’s an increased focus and demand on the role of cyber security. The specialist techniques taught as part of this course will help prepare you for a career in a rapidly growing industry which is currently faced with a shortage of skills. Our graduates have progressed into careers in industry, government and law enforcement, as security analysts, penetration testers, forensic investigators and cyber security engineers, at organisations such as Deloitte, Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), Airbus, and Rolls-Royce.

Teaching and assessments

Assessment is made up of roughly 25 per cent end-of-year examination and 75 per cent coursework in each year. The coursework takes a variety of forms, with frequent laboratory-based phase tests providing early feedback on progress. In the second year, more substantial assignments are set, including a research study. In the final year, assessment is typically by coursework with some specialist optional modules assessed by exams.
