The MSc in Cyber Security Engineering is designed for those wishing to develop a career as a cyber security professional. [+]

Masters of Science 2017 in West Midlands United Kingdom. The MSc in Cyber Security Engineering is designed for those wishing to develop a career as a cyber security professional. Why is Cyber Security important Cyberspace comprises the network of digital devices, used to store, modify and communicate information. Our world is increasingly shaped by cyberspace. Opportunities for interaction are emerging in ways, only imagined by previous generations. As the influence of cyberspace in our lives continues to grow, so does the associated security risk. As organisations worldwide harness the opportunities of cyberspace, they create huge demand for cyber security professionals. Cyber security professionals who can function at various strata within an organisation - server room, operations room, board room - you choose. Their task is beguilingly simple: enable the good and prevent the bad. GCHQ Certification GCHQ, the UK government's National Technical Authority for Information Assurance, identified the shortage of cyber professionals as a concern that needed to be addressed. Part of their strategy was to identify cyber security master's courses that would "... help prospective students make better informed decisions when looking for a highly valued cyber security qualification". At the University of Warwick, we specifically designed MSc Cyber Security Engineering to meet GCHQ's demanding requirements. MSc Cyber Security Engineering received provisional certification by GCHQ in 2015. If you are an EU or international student, you should value GCHQ certification, just as much as any UK student. The content of the course is internationally applicable. Course Structure The curriculum... [-]
