Summary

The MSc Data Networks and Security programme intends to develop your competence in using tools and techniques for configuring data networking systems, securing data networking systems and managing data networking systems in a production environment.

What's covered in the course?

The course is designed to cover a number of advanced topics in data network engineering, namely, network management, network security, network automation and information security. In addition, you will receive a solid grounding in research methods and project management before undertaking an individual project that provides an opportunity to demonstrate technical and general employability skills in preparation for career progression. More specifically, the individual project simulates typical graduate workplace tasks that require in-depth knowledge and skills in a specific area of computer science and network engineering. This will include consideration of wider issues and the ability to manage activities and resources, as well as generate, implement and report on solutions to meet task objectives. Throughout your studies, you’ll be supported by our expert teaching staff, all of whom have a wide range of research and industrial experience in areas such as intelligent systems, mobile computing, Semantic Web, machine learning and software engineering, which they use to enhance the curriculum.
