Course content

Our Cyber Security and Data Analytics MSc is aimed at providing students with key skills to respond to imminent and emerging cyber-threats faced by today’s digitalised world.

We are increasingly surrounded by high tech systems like cloud computing, smart and wearable devices, mobile network technologies, and artificial intelligence, all of which enable us to keep connected and carry out our daily activities with great ease. That's why this programme has been designed to master the use of Data Analytics in Cyber Security.
You will be provided with the principles of deep learning and neural networks for cyber-threat mitigation, advanced encryption methods to protect data privacy and digital forensics to investigate cyber-attacks. The core aim of our cyber security master's degree is to develop the employment skills which are essential to Security Operational Centres, Antivirus Software Companies, Artificial Intelligent Start-ups, e-commerce companies, and governmental organisations.
You will be given the opportunity to participate in major technology projects within the Institute for Digital Technologies. Optional industrial internship opportunities will also help to bring you up-to-date with the latest knowledge and skills required in the sector. If you are interested in advancing your skills in data analytics based cyber defence to support existing organisations or the building of your own, then this programme is right for you.
