This course combines two disciplines: cybersecurity and artificial intelligence (AI). Cybersecurity is one of the most pressing problems of our time and artificial intelligence has made great advances in recent years. Skills in both areas are very much in demand. You will receive a grounding in the fundamentals of cybersecurity and AI. There are taught modules in each of these disciplines and you’ll carry out a project that addresses a research problem (or problems) at the interface of the two.
We use lectures, online technical content, tutorials, practical lab sessions and seminars led by staff from external organisations.
Assessment is by formal examinations, coursework, mini team project, practical assessment, podcast and poster development, and a research project dissertation.
