Course summary

As we generate data at an ever-increasing pace, the security of this data has become paramount. In the 21st Century, data has become a necessary commodity, which has value in isolation and more so when viewed as a larger data set for trends and habits. Data is key to business functioning, and protection of this data is key to the ongoing success of the digital economy. You will become equipped with technical knowledge, intellectual know-how, management capabilities and practical skills that will enable you to succeed in meeting the cyber security challenges facing modern organisations. As the systems that both generate and consume data grow in capability and complexity, and as the Internet of Things continues to expand exponentially, the need to protect the data created, stored and transited across public and private networks intensifies. The need to protect this data increases with each advance in technology, as does the requirement to have suitably qualified cyber security practitioners. This course is supported by a vibrant research environment within the Centre for Cyber Security at BCU and by traditionally strong industrial links which currently include Cisco, Oracle, IBM, Microsoft and BT. Professional Placement Year This course offers a professional placement year. This allows you to spend a whole year with an employer, between the second and third years of your degree, and is a great way to find out more about your chosen career. Some students even return to the same employers after completing their studies. The University will draw on its extensive network of local, regional and national employers to support you in finding a suitable placement to complement your chosen area of study. If you do not find a suitable placement, you will be automatically transferred back to the standard, non-placement version of the course. Please note that fees are payable during your placement year. For details, visit the course page on the Birmingham City University website.
