From October 2018, our new suite of part-time Masters programmes offers you fantastic career specialisation, career switch or career development opportunities within the digital and computing industry. So, no matter where you are in your career path, we will be running a programme tailored to your needs. These programmes are:
These Masters offer you something no matter what your career ambitions and interests are – whether you’re seeking career specialisation, development or a career switch. The fact is, given the pace of digitalisation in the workplace and regulation change, thanks to GDPR, there is a pressing need for technical specialists, entry-level positions, and for existing professionals to develop and add value to their role.
Let’s take a look at each course briefly.
You won’t graduate a technical specialist, but this will provide you with an entry into this dynamic sector. With cyber crime estimated to cost business and governments $6 trillion by 2021, there is significant investment to train or employ staff across all organisations, and with that many opportunities for graduates of this programme to take make their own.
Expect vulnerability assessments, penetration testing and threat intelligence analysis, to computer security principles and models, cloud data and storage security.
This is a more generalist programme, open to anyone with a degree in any subject, including computing, as well as relevant work experience. You may already be working on the service desk and the next step is managerial.
Think information governance, regulation frameworks and practical tool kits, to programming languages, software life cycle modelling and developing an innovation strategy.
The roles of many professionals has evolved in the age of digitisation to incorporate leading or managing information security for an organisation. This is particularly true following the introduction of GDPR, which has fallen into the remit of those without the necessary expertise to handle this to the best of their ability. This programme is in response to this development.
Imagine information integrity, authenticity and confidentiality protection, to developing alternative strategies to mitigate against contemporary issues and incident response frameworks.
As you can see, these programmes are wide ranging and develop your expertise in each respective field, and the module content reflects this. Given the well documented digital skills gap, cyber threat and changing business operations landscape, there is an opportunity in each specialisation for graduates. Yet a common feature across all 3 programmes is to develop your ability as a digital leader.
Having digital leadership skills is essential for your career development, emphasised in these programmes through the dedicated module Leadership in a Digital Age. You will need to become competent in designing and deploying technological strategies, in response to the challenging but opportune complex operating environment.
