This is an online blended learning postgraduate programme that builds a student's ability to locate, extract and analyse data from multiple sources and to appreciate the appropriate use of relevant tools within cyber-security. This programme is aimed at individuals interested in cyber-security, but who lack the formal qualifications to join one of our conventional Master's programmes.

The taught courses are one year (full-time) or two years (part-time), with one year in industry, where the student will gain invaluable work experience and conjointly undertake their Master's project (worth 60 credits).
