Cyber security is an increasingly important area to build a rewarding career in. We’ll support you from day one, ensuring that you leave BNU as a ‚work-ready’ graduate. To help you achieve your goals we have invested in a top-end Cyber Resilience facility at our Aylesbury Campus and well-equipped computer labs on our High Wycombe Campus.
Did you know that all four years of an integrated master’s degree are eligible for undergraduate student finance? An integrated master’s degree allows you to gain the same funding as undergraduate students and stand out in a competitive jobs market. Employers are increasingly looking for employees with the advanced technical skills and expert understanding provided by an integrated master’s degree course.
Why study this subject?
If there ever was a time to enter the cyber security field, it’s now. The Internet, web, cloud and mobile applications have changed our lives forever. It is arguably one of the most exciting and transformative developments of recent years. We now have unprecedented access to information, like-minded individuals and a whole host of potential problems.
With cyber threats and attacks continuing to increase, there is a high demand for qualified cyber security professionals by business, government and law enforcement agencies across the globe.
What facilities can I use?
We have first class learning facilitates to equip you with the skills that match the requirements of the top employers in the industry.
Throughout the year you’ll have access to both our specialist computing suite in the Gateway building at our High Wycombe campus and our Cyber Resilience Centre at our Aylesbury Campus.
Our library is the perfect place to find the resources you need and a quiet place to study, filled with four floors of books, journals, computer suites and study rooms. Or, if you’d rather work off campus, e-Journals and resources are only a few clicks away using our Virtual Learning Environment.
You can also benefit from BucksAnywhere, a web service which provides access to many of the software applications we use for teaching and studying. BucksAnywhere can be used from your own Windows or Mac device or from a University owned PC or laptop, from any location.
What will I study?
Our MSci (Hons) Cyber Security programme combines three years of undergraduate study with an additional fourth year at postgraduate level, in a single course.
The integrated master’s degree is identical to the equivalent undergraduate course but provides you with the opportunity to delve deeper into your interest in the fourth year of study, enabling you to graduate with a master’s degree.
If you do not achieve the necessary standard of performance to continue onto the fourth year and complete the integrated masters, you can still graduate after three years with a Bachelor degree qualification.
This programme focuses on providing insight into the context of the needs of real organisations by exploring their current and future operating environments.
During the course, you’ll also learn to use a wide range of cyber security related tools and techniques, alongside specialist technical skills in computer programming, software engineering, cloud and database development.
You’ll learn modern technical system tools like network and software security, artificial inelegant systems security, cloud computing system security, and mobile systems security, as well as developing management skills in business continuity and disaster recovery, cyber security assurance and risk management, in addition to research techniques.
As you progress, you’ll gain a solid understanding of how to protect organisations, networks, IT systems and individuals against cyber-attacks and cyber threats.
You’ll be given the opportunity to become more effective and creative when solving cyber security problems, as well as analysing scenarios with a view to being able to advise individuals.
