Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

Mae'r radd hon yn mynd i'r afael â'r materion diogelwch allweddol y mae systemau cyfathrebu a gwybodaeth yn eu hwynebu, a datblygu eich sgiliau ymarferol drwy eich amlygu i broblemau a setiau data'r byd real.

Our MSc Cybersecurity addresses the key security issues that are faced by global communications and information systems.

The programme, which has been shaped with input from large and small corporations via our industry advisory board, provides a mix of business context with core security, trust and privacy issues that challenge the IT sector. The learning outcomes in the programme are designed to align with the recommendations of GCHQ for a Masters level cybersecurity curriculum. The course builds on previous skills in computer science, to strengthen understanding of this emerging area.

As well as studying themes such as secure application development, network security, malware analysis, security operations and digital forensics, you will gain an understanding of the risk management and business continuity aspects that are crucial to cyber resilience in an ever-evolving threat landscape. This combined business/security approach provides valuable training for interacting with organisations, and understanding their business functions in a deeper context.

Using case-based analysis, you will have the opportunity to learn about security operations and forensic approaches to investigation across multiple platforms.

Nodweddion unigryw

  • Researcher-led modules integrate the latest research ideas with current best practice.
  • The programme is guided and supported by security practitioners from industry, ensuring high relevance and employability.
  • Students will have access to our Cybersecurity and Forensics Laboratory. In this dedicated network, they can explore the security challenges facing today’s professionals through experiments with real attacks in realistic real-world scenarios.
  • Professionally accredited by the BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT.
  • Placement opportunities with world-leading industrial security practitioners.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

The School of Computer Science and Informatics has a strong and active research culture which informs and directs our teaching. We are committed to providing teaching of the highest standard.

Modules are delivered through a series of either full or half-day contact sessions, which include lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and laboratory classes. We regularly invite guest lecturers from industry and we pride ourselves on our hands-on experiences of practical cybersecurity

Most of your taught modules will have further information for you to study and you will be expected to work through this in your own time according to the guidance provided by the lecturer for that module.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Modules will be assessed either by coursework, examination, or a combination of both.

Feedback:

Feedback on coursework may be provided via written comments on work submitted, by provision of ‘model’ answers and/or through discussion in contact sessions.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

We pride ourselves on providing a supportive environment in which we are able to help and encourage our students.

At the start of your course you will be allocated a Personal Tutor who is an academic member of staff in the School and serves as a point of contact to advise on both academic and personal matters in an informal and confidential manner. Your Personal Tutor will monitor your progress throughout your time at university and will support you in your Personal Development Planning.

Outside of scheduled tutor sessions, our Senior Personal Tutor runs an open-door policy, being on hand to advise and respond to any personal matters as they arise.
