Computing with Systems Security Management
Postgraduate Certificate/Postgraduate Diploma/MSc
This course provides you with the technical understanding and management skills required to ensure data and systems security. Combining theory, tools, methods and management techniques you’ll develop a professional approach to information systems analysis and project management, and define requirements for designing, implementing and evaluating secure systems.
You’ll also develop some of the forensic and management skills needed to identify attempts to compromise systems and prevent attacks. The course provides a well-balanced perspective, to prepare you for a career in data and IT security management.
You can acquire both the core skills in computing and develop contemporary specialist skills through our computing pathways. You need not have a computing background to succeed, but you must be motivated. You’ll need to be competent in using information technology, with an aptitude for developing high-level technical skills. With a blend of theory, tools, methods and management techniques, you learn to create and successfully deploy software products.
You design, build, test and evaluate applications. Your work rests on an understanding of professional project management, ethics and quality issues. This provides you with a complete and well-balanced perspective, preparing you for an exciting career in the industry.
You are encouraged to build on your previous background, perhaps using it as the base for particular projects or assignments. You benefit by drawing on your own experiences and those of the teaching staff, external contacts and fellow students. This will give you a solid grounding to follow in the footsteps of previous students who have gained promotion, created their own businesses or progressed to research degrees.
