Services for Business

 stairs1                               


The Cyber Technology Institute at De Montfort University offers a range of training and consultancy services to both global organisations, such as BT and Airbus Group, as well as local SMEs. These services include:

Apprenticeships

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses

MSc Qualifications for your Employees

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

 


 

Apprenticeships

An integrated model: University and Work - the best of both

A Foundation degree is a vocational higher education qualification which equates to the first two years of a Bachelor's degree.  These courses are a qualification in their own right and cover the levels of study known as Level 4 (Year One) and Level (Year Two). Once someone has completed their Foundation degree, they can choose to continue onto a Top-Up degree to gain a full Bachelor's award (know as Level 6).

                                          BT-Cyber-main

We are already delivering a foundation degree as part of the BT Higher Apprenticeship scheme.  This partnership has been highly successful and we are pleased to be able to continue this relationship with BT over the next few years, including offering the additional top-up award.

If your organisation is interested in investigating the potential to develop a similar Cyber Security Work-based Degree; as part of Higher Apprenticeships, we would be pleased to discuss this with you.

Please contact: cybertech.support@dmu.ac.uk.

 


 

CPD courses

Ensuring that your skills and knowledge are kept up-to-date is critical in an area, such as cyber technology, where the pace of change is faster than it has ever been.

In order to ensure your staff's skills are relevant to the current cyber challenges, we offer a wide range of CPD training courses in cyber security, software engineering, digital forensics and management subject areas.

These are the current Cyber Security and Digital Forensics CPD courses that we offer in the CTI.

For a discussion as to how a CPD programme could be tailored to your organisational needs; as well as upcoming dates, pricing and for any other information about these courses, please contact: cybertech.support@dmu.ac.uk

 


 

MSc Qualifications

In addition to providing CPD training courses, we have also developed Cyber Technology MSc, designed to support organisational training needs. 

This specialist programme has been developed with members of our Industrial Advisory Group, which includes: Airbus, BT, Deloitte and Rolls Royce.

The course includes four main pathways: cyber security; software engineering; digital forensics and management; and it can be tailored to support the specific training and development needs of a sponsor organisation. 

For more information about how your organisation can take advantage of this opportunity, and our Cyber Academy schemes, please contact us: cybertech.support@dmu.ac.uk.

 


 

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships

Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP) is a government funded programme designed to help businesses improve their competitiveness, productivity and performance.  This is achieved by forming a Partnership between your business and De Montfort University (DMU), enabling you to access skills and expertise to help your business develop. 

We are already running successful KTPs in the Cyber Technology Institute at DMU. With Airbus Group, we are working to develop digital security and forensic capabilities for Critical Infrastructure Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition and Smart Grid Systems. 

With Measom (Dryline) Limited, we are working to develop and embed a new database management system and bring ICT management in-house, improving labour efficiencies and support business expansion.
