Research in computer and information security

This programme is closely linked with research activities within the Centre for Security, Communications and Network Research (CSCAN)

The taught materials are delivered by academics with an international reputation for research and teaching in information security. 

In addition to having strong research backgrounds, our academics are also practitioners holding many professional qualifications in the area (e.g. SANS GIAC Intrusion Analyst, IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional and AccessData Certified Examiner). 

This mixture of theory, research and practice is imperative within the programme to ensure you remain knowledgeable, relevant and marketable to future employers. 

The centre also provides opportunities for further study with over 50 PhD students, many of whom are focused upon developing the next generation of security systems.
