Computer Security

This four-year Master of Computing (MComp) Computer Security is the highest award for undergraduate study in computing and is designed for more able students. Combining our BSc (Hons) Computer Security degree with Masters-level material, it allows you to further distinguish yourself with an advanced set of professional and technical skills. The MComp Computer Security also removes the need to source further funding to study a Masters-level qualification. On completion, you will be better placed to compete in the graduate jobs market and enter more demanding and rewarding roles. The security of computer systems is vital, with more and more of our details collected and held by companies and government. As attempts to breach these security systems become more sophisticated, preventing unauthorised access is an important role in society. This Computer Security course has a practical emphasis to prepare you for a career in computer security. You’ll understand how computer systems are designed and secured, and learn how to protect them against all kinds of attacks. Your studies will also cover effective computer systems management and how to complete an effective IT health check. The University is recognised as a Centre of Excellence for information security and computer forensics by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO)
