The course is designed for those who’d like to develop a career as a cyber security professional, or to take a leading technical or managerial role. It’s suitable for those from a computer science or information technology education background. The programme is also able to cater for those with no formal studies in computer science – but where you can demonstrate significant interest in cyber security.
