The UK cyber security market is regarded as the largest in Europe. The increasing threat of cyber attacks has led to greater spending on security in all sectors. Our applied course will prepare you for a career as a cyber security professional, a role highly valued by employers nationally and internationally. You’ll design and develop secure digital systems that meet current and future needs, and you'll explore software development, software-hardware interface design and artificial intelligence (AI).
