MSc Computer Security

Computer security remains a hot topic in the media and there is strong demand for graduates with technical skills in the area. The course addresses computer and information security holistically because a vulnerability in any one component can compromise an entire system. This includes computer architectures, operating systems, network technologies, data storage and software development processes. A wide range of threats and other security issues (e.g. denial of service attacks, hacking, viruses, worms, etc) are covered along with defences and countermeasures.

The programme is aimed at computing graduates seeking careers as computer security professionals or interested in research.
