The MSc in Cyber Security and Management is designed for those wishing to develop a career as a cyber security professional, or to take a leading technical or managerial role in an organisation critically dependent upon data and information communication technology. It is suitable for those from a computer science or information technology education background or courses with a significant component of either. Work experience will also be considered.

Delivering effective cyber security in a global business environment

In 2010, the UK government announced a 650 million pound investment strategy into Cyber Security & declared that Cyber-Security had become a ‘tier 1’ priority alongside international terrorism and major national incidents. The UK is one of many governments around the world which recognize the serious nature of the threat that is emerging from the cyber-sphere. Our goal for the MSc programme is to give focus to the strategic deployment and implementation of Cyber Security within an organization. We want to develop strategic thinkers who understand the Cyber threat to an organization and its resources and are able to build and support secure systems that support the strategic growth of a business. The course covers all aspects of Cyber Security including network security, computer security and information security. Alongside this, the course focuses on the business context so that students can progress their careers more rapidly through organisations and aim very particularly at management positions.

A Master's course uniquely embedded in industry

When you study the MSc Cyber Security and Management at WMG, Warwick, you will gain an exposure to industry that is unparalleled in many HEIs. All the cyber security modules contain a considerable input from industry, for instance in the academic year 2012-2013 alone, we had the following companies giving guest lectures to our students: HP, Amethyst Consulting, Deep Secure Ltd, Siskin Technolgy, SOCA (Serious Organised Crime Agency), CSC, VMware, OCSIA, Nottingham Police, Mozilla, Metropolitan Police, Kaspersky, Berwin Leighton Paisner, LW Risk Associates, Telefonica, IBM, Garren James Associates, Blackstage Forensics, Derbyshire NHS Trust and Nettitude.* But this is just one way in which students on the course engage with industry. Further to this, you will have opportunities to visit and present at conferences, participate in specialist industrial trips and even receive mentoring/advice from industry in key stages of your work.

Course Structure

The course is modular; each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 9 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week.

Modules are assessed by Post Module Assignment - this is typically a further 40 -60 hours of work.The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%. This should take approximately 900 hours of study time. An oral examination is held upon completion.

For the current academic year (2017/18), the course comprises nine 10-credit modules and a 90-credit dissertation.Please note:Our course and module content and schedule is continually reviewed and updated to reflect the latest research expertise at Warwick, so it is therefore very important that you check the website for the latest information before you apply and when you accept an offer. warwick.ac.uk/wmgmasters/csm

Designed for

CSE is designed for Computer Science, Informatics, IT or other STEM graduates, looking to become a cyber security professional, or take a leading technical role in an organisation critically dependent upon data and information communication.

What will this course provide?

Cyber security is not simply about protecting the internet. As our world becomes ever more dependent upon digital systems, our vehicles, infrastructure, industrial controls, finances, and medical devices all exist within the cyber domain.

Studying Cyber Security with us will deepen your cyberspace knowledge, so you’ll understand the nature of this evolving cyber environment, and how to protect and enhance the human experience within it.

This MSc focuses on the technical aspects of cyber security and how these may be implemented in a multidisciplinary way. Throughout the course the practical applications of topics are emphasised, as well as developing your abstract and analytical skills.

Through studying Cyber Security at Warwick, you will gain unparalleled exposure to industry. All taught modules contain valuable input from industry experts who, through case studies and guest lectures, contribute to the design and delivery of material and make for a very rich learning environment.

GCHQ Certification

GCHQ, the UK government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, identified the shortage of cyber professionals as a concern that needed to be addressed. Part of their strategy was to identify cyber security master's courses that would "... help prospective students make better informed decisions when looking for a highly valued cyber security qualification".

At the University of Warwick, we specifically designed MSc Cyber Security Engineering to meet GCHQ's demanding requirements. MSc Cyber Security Engineering received provisional certification by GCHQ in 2015.

If you are an EU or international student, you should value GCHQ certification, just as much as any UK student. The content of the course is internationally applicable.

Course modules

CSE currently comprises eight compulsory 15-credit taught modules and a 60-credit dissertation. For 2018 entry, additional modules may be added.

  • Security Architectures and Network Defence Cyber Intelligence and Operations 
  • Cryptosystems and Data Protection Cyber-Physical Systems 
  • Information Risk Management and Governance Enterprise Cyber Security 
  • Industrial Espionage and Counterfeiting 
  • Digital Forensics 

The curriculum is divided in eight taught modules and the project. Each module is taught in a one week blocks. Typically these are spaced approximately three weeks apart. It is during this time between modules that you will complete assessed assignments.

The individual project commences in February. By June it will fully occupy your study time with taught modules typically finished in May.

The number of taught modules and the weighting of the project in MSc Cyber Security Engineering is different from most other programmes in the WMG taught Master's portfolio.

Teaching style

Tutors adopt their own distinctive style within their taught weeks. Most modules are taught by more than one tutor, which, together with the wide range of guest speakers, gives real breadth of insight into any topic. The external input is especially evident in the Enterprise Cyber Security module where colleagues from IBM make a substantial contribution to the week's activities.

After you graduate

Graduates can expect rapid career progression in within a wide range of organisations relating to cyber security in a range of roles.

About Mobile and Embedded Systems

The future of information and communication technology (ICT) is driven by mobile and networked embedded systems: tomorrow’s digital cities, Industry 4.0, cyber-physical systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT) will all depend on embedded sensing of real-world phenomena, in-situ computation as well as automated information exchange and data distribution using machine-to-machine (M2M) com­munications between local and distributed control systems and machinery.

The ‘smart grid’ is one example of an application for future embedded systems, as it uses real-time sensing of the available renewable energy to determine where energy is to be routed across the power grid and controls intelligent machinery to increase production during peak times; this requires that internet-connected smart meters are installed in industrial plants and private homes alike to facilitate real-time sensing and control of technical systems.

Another exciting area of application for embedded systems is mobile and wearable technology, which allows users to access and manipulate information ‘on the go’ as the system provides relevant and timely information — indeed, this is one of the main purposes of mobile information technology such as smartphones and tablet computers. Additional meaning for this Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is generated by the context of the device, the user, the location and many more factors, all of which are sensed and computed by a plenitude of embedded sensors and collocated or connected systems.

Wearable devices such as fitness trackers and smart watches collect bio-physiological and health-related data to facilitate novel applications, including smart contact lenses and feedback systems for the learning of physical activities. At the same time, increasing cross-device interoperability means that users of head-mounted augmented reality and virtual reality displays can, for instance, use their entire smartphone screen as a keyboard and have the typed text displayed on augmented reality glasses.

Programme content

The programme is divided into three module groups with core and elective modules. These are:

1. Human-Computer Interaction
2. Systems Engineering
3. Data Processing, Signals and Systems


- Excellent rankings for computer science, e.g. in U-Multirank and the CHE rankings
