    Modern society relies on the safe and secure functioning of technical systems. IT usually is at the heart of these systems, although the computing aspect often is nearly invisible (this led to the term "the disappearing computer"). Most of these systems are connected with the Internet. Their dependability relies on the safety and security of computer systems. International standards such as ISO 9000, the European Functional Safety standards SIL, or DO 178 describe various integrity levels.
    The MSc in Advanced Computer Science with specialism in Safe and Secure Systems will provide you with key knowledge in the area of Computer Safety and IT Security. You will learn different skills and knowledge in a range of application domains.
    You will also strengthen your skills to build safe and secure systems, by taking modules from the broad range of options available, provided by internationally renowned research groups.


    A 2:2 honours degree (or above) in Computer Science or other relevant discipline.

    IELTS 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or equivalent English test.


    As a student on the MSc in Advanced Computer Science: Safe and Secure Systems you will study a range of modules including:
