MSc Computer Networks and Security provides specialist study of computer networks and computer security. These two areas are strongly related, given the ubiquity of networks and the vulnerability to attack of networks and of systems connected to them. Although, computer network security is covered in the course, the award is a hybrid of computer network study and computer security with the intention to equip you with advanced skills in both areas. The networking topics utilise Cisco networking equipment and support material provided by Cisco Systems Inc.
