The course isdesigned for those who require a broad overview of information management and security as well as technical knowledge in the areas of emerging technologies, computer security, networking administration and management, information security management, advanced security countermeasures, data governance and compliance and professional project management.

There is a focus on research methodologies including ethics, legal aspects and professional applications of information systems development, risk assessment and risk management. You will also develop skills in communication, problem solving and teamwork.

There is also a strong focus on practical experience of database and grid middleware design and development. You will have access to our state-of-the-art computer laboratories, with more than 450 workstations, five servers, dedicated network and robotics laboratories, as well as an overall ratio of computers to students nearly twice the number recommended by the British Computer Society.

Research underpins all aspects of the course. By 2009 the department had attracted more than ¬5m of funding from UK and European funding bodies, and the research in the department is going from strength to strength.

Additionally, this Masters course demonstrates a strong appreciation of industrial and real-life needs. The department has won a number of Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) placements with local companies and, in 2006, we launched the Academic into Business Computing scheme (ABC) to provide computing students with work experience in a professional work environment.

Throughout your course you will be exposed to a wide variety of assessment techniques including: written examinations, case studies, practical coursework assignments, problem worksheets, presentations and viva voce (voice) examinations.

The key philosophy of our assessment strategy is to allow you to apply the knowledge and understanding that you have gained during the learning phase, to a variety of challenging and complex practical situations. We believe that this will allow you to enter the work place fully prepared for the challenges that you will face.

You must have passed 105 credits before undertaking the MSc project.
