Course content

Who is this course designed for?

Cyber Security Engineering is designed for Computer Science, Informatics, IT or other STEM graduates, looking to become a cyber security professional, or take a leading technical role in an organisation critically dependent upon data and information communication.

What this course will provide

Cyber security is not simply about protecting the internet. As our world becomes ever more dependent upon digital systems, our vehicles, infrastructure, industrial controls, finances, and medical devices all exist within the cyber domain.

Studying Cyber Security at Warwick will deepen your cyberspace knowledge, so you’ll understand the nature of this evolving cyber environment, and how to protect and enhance the human experience within it. You will be enabling the good whilst preventing the bad.

This MSc focuses on the technical aspects of cyber security and how these may be implemented in a multidisciplinary way. Throughout the course the practical applications of topics are emphasised, as well as developing your abstract and analytical skills.

CSE is provisionally certified by the National Cyber security Centre (part of GCHQ)
