This master’s course is great if you want to become an expert in computer security and networks. Whether you want to continue in your computer science studies or turn your industry experience into qualifications, this is the ideal course for you.

Course details

Computer security and networks experts are in high demand around the world. You study a combination of modules, from Systems Administration and Security through to Mobile Systems and Communications, making sure you have the right skills for business. You gain a good understanding of planning and managing large development projects when studying our E-Commerce Management and Master’s Project modules – both will enhance your employability and career prospects even further.

There are three routes you can choose from to gain an MSc Computer Security and Networks:

  • full-time - 2 years with advanced practice (September start)
  • full-time - 1 year (September start) or 16 months (January start)
  • part-time - 2 years.

What you study

You study the concepts, principles and theories of computer networks and security, informed by current research and professional practice. For example, building and managing a secure and effective commercial web presence requires much more than coding expertise – it requires a sound combination of commercial acumen, technical understanding and effective operations management. Our lecturers have significant research and industry experience and are well placed to develop your skills and knowledge in this field.

How you learn

You learn about concepts and methods primarily through keynote lectures and tutorials using case studies and examples. Lectures include presentations from guest speakers from industry. Critical reflection is key to successful problem solving and essential to the creative process. You develop your own reflective practice at an advanced level, then test and assess your solutions against criteria that you develop in the light of your research. For example, in Mobile Systems and Communications and Network Service Management you research an agreed area, based on the topics introduced during lectures, and prepare a report on this.

How you are assessed

Assessment takes a variety of forms including:

  • designing and developing business solutions
  • presentations
  • peer reviews
  • reports.

We typically give on-going feedback during lectures and tutorials and assessment feedback using online methods.
