Introduction

This MEng provides in-depth knowledge of emerging security threats and solutions for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems. Equips students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to identify, develop and implement highly secure systems and networks that serve enterprise goals.

Security has recently become a top priority as communication and information have become a key factor in economic and societal development. Networks and information systems are now supporting services and carrying data to an extent inconceivable only a few years ago. Concerns about the security of electronic networks and information systems have been growing along with the rapid increase in the number of network users and the value of their transactions. Security has now reached a critical point where it represents a prerequisite for the growth of electronic businesses and the functioning of whole economies. Maintaining secure systems and guarding company information are considered critical in today's business environments. Most companies, especially those in banking, defence, e-commerce and telecommunications, are making systems security a top priority. Consequently, there is a great need for skilled professionals who can plan, analyse and implement security measures.

The MEng in Information and Network Security programme aims to provide graduates with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to contribute as technical leaders and researchers in systems security management.

Graduate Profile

Graduates of this programme will be able to develop and manage security policies related to organisations' IT systems and to combat threats to corporate technical resources.
