Program description

Computer Networking and Cyber Security - MSc (Part-time)

Why study this course?

Our Computer Networking and Cyber Security MSc postgraduate course includes Cisco accreditation and is designed for those wishing to pursue a career in computer networking and cyber security. During the course, you’ll develop the ability to design and manage robust networking and cyber security systems.

Keeping computer systems secure is one of the most challenging tasks of our time. To help you rise to the challenge, this MSc provides knowledge in the very latest security principles, tools and techniques taught by specialist staff in a dedicated IT security laboratory. You'll also gain an understanding of the principles underpinning effective approaches to cyber defence in response to a cyber attack.

This master's course offers you a unique opportunity to combine knowledge of networking technologies with cyber security and gain Cisco accreditation. Such a combination is attractive to employers who increasingly seek graduates in this field.

The growing international consensus is that increased cyber security skills are needed in order to respond to the number and sophistication of digital threats. Governments, corporations and large and small organisations recognise this as a priority, and so are on the lookout for graduates of a high calibre to work in this field.

Our Communications Technology group was one of the first university groups in the UK to be awarded the Cisco Networking Academy accreditation in 1998. Since then, we have been running short and evening courses in Cisco CCNA and CCNP certification. These are two of the most prestigious vocational certifications valued in computer networking and its related industries.

Admission requirements

You will be required to have:

  • A lower second class (2:2) UK degree (or equivalent) in Computer Networking and Cyber Security, Computer Security, Computer Science, Computing, Electronics and Communications, or a closely related discipline
  • Applicants with relevant professional experience will also be considered

Please note the networking modules are based on CISCO CCNP curriculum and are very practically assessed. You are strongly advised to either study CISCO CCNA or ensure that you are competent in configuring CISCO devices before you enrol to ensure success in this MSc program.
