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.

Teaching

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.

Employability

Career opportunities

From the beginning of your programme, we prepare you for a career in industry. In addition to your taught classes, we create opportunities for you to meet and network with our industry partners through events such as our ExpoSeries, which showcases student work to industry. ExpoTees is the pinnacle of the ExpoSeries with over 100 businesses from across the UK coming to the campus to meet our exceptional students, with a view to recruitment.

Advanced practice

There are a number of internship options, including:

  • Vocational internship – spend one semester working full-time in industry or on placement in the University. We have close links with a range of national and international companies who will offer you the chance to develop your knowledge and professional skills in the workplace through an internship. Although we cannot guarantee internships, we will provide you with practical support and advice on how to find and secure your own internship position. A vocational internship is a great way to gain work experience and give your CV a competitive edge.
  • Research internship – develop your research and academic skills by undertaking a research internship within the University. Experience working as part of a research team in an academic setting. Ideal for those who are interested in a career in research or academia.
