This course will teach you the latest thinking in cyber security, including the concepts, principles, technologies and practices for addressing current and emerging cyber security threats and challenges.
With cybercrime on a steep rise and cyber terrorism emerging as a national concern, the MEng Computer Science with Cyber Security is specifically designed to produce graduates with a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary view of the subject area, embracing the technical subjects in depth, but including important aspects of criminology, risk management, law and social sciences.
We have strong relationships with employers, and our graduates are particularly in demand for their understanding of organisations and their practical abilities in the workplace. We have our own Careers Hub and run an annual careers fair.
