"It's great preparation for defending systems against hackers."
"It was a personal interest in computers, as well as the current demand for Network Security experts that convinced me to enrol. There are so many opportunities out there, especially for people with the latest expertise. The lecturers have a 'Complete Approach' to learning, so we cover every aspect of networks and network security, from the perspective of both the hacker, and the security professional. I've already been introduced to many techniques used by the modern attacker, which is great preparation for defending systems against them."

The School of Computer and Security Science was established in July 2009 through the amalgamation of the School of Computer and Information Science with the Security Science discipline from the School of Engineering. Consequently, the School of Computer and Security Science offers a variety of courses from undergraduate through to doctoral level, across the discipline areas of computing, information science and security science.
Our school has a strong international teaching program, both on-campus and through our offshore partners.
Our staff and research students are actively engaged in research across the school’s discipline areas, exploring a diverse range of topics.
