Cyberattacks on governments, businesses and individuals are a worldwide concern, and the growth of mobile and the Internet of Things means that exposure to this threat is likely to increase.

Our Business Computing with Cyber Security degree is an opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills to address these concerns, enabling you to defend business computer operating systems, networks and data from cyberattacks.

You will explore building and maintaining software for business systems, gaining a professional understanding of how to manage the development process, along with the ability to evaluate whether existing business system processes are effective. You will develop technical skills in programming, database design, data management, website design and e-commerce, and the ability to apply cyber security concepts to these technologies.

The focus is on applied learning through real-life project work using specialist facilities, including secure and dependable software systems research labs, a security lab, and the Internet of Things lab. Our close links with local and national organisations provide placement opportunities and a network of professional contacts.

This new course is in the final stages of development and small changes may occur. Check back for the most up-to-date information.
