Keeping computer systems secure is one of the most important challenges of our time. Heriot-Watt has created a programme which teaches the theory, methods and tools of computer network security. It’ll give you the knowledge to help you keep networks safe from attacks and threats by hostile parties, plus the skills to formulate policies, deploy network security solutions and validate their effectiveness. The course also offers a detailed understanding of contemporary issues in network security research areas. Our masters in Network Security is ideally suited for honours graduates with an IT background.
The full-time Network Security masters starts in mid September and lasts one year. The course can also be taken part-time over two years, or as a nine month Postgraduate Diploma.
