BSc (Hons) Cyber Security


Programme Features

We now live online – shop online, work online and socialize online. Meanwhile, our online activities generate a large amount of data that might be held by government bodies or commercial companies. If the information systems employed by these bodies are not secure, our data may fall into the wrong hands where it might be exploited to cause not only financial harm but also threaten our safety. This is why cyber security becomes a very important issue nowadays which everyone should be aware of.


This course provides a good combination of theory and practice by balancing cutting-edge security technologies and solutions with fundamental concepts and principles. After taking the course, you will have the necessary security knowledge and skills to embark on a security career.
