Cyber Security: Cyber Security is constantly in the news. Whether it is the theft of a laptop containing secret information, high-profile hacking incidents or an attack on the national critical infrastructure, it is impossible to ignore the importance of cyber security.
The Cyber Security modules are developed in conjunction with Deloitte and provide the most up-to-date cyber security principles, practice, tools and techniques, taught by a team of ten experienced, specialist staff in a purpose-built computer security and forensics laboratory at DMU and at the premises of Deloitte.
Software Engineering: The overall aim of this theme is to consider software engineering as the systematic application of tools and techniques to the various stages of the software development process. In particular, to the specification, design, implementation, testing, deployment, and evolution stages of dependable, scalable and robust software systems within constraints of cost, time, available resource and pre-existing systems. The major focus of the course is the formal specification of such critical systems at every stage of development.
Digital Forensics: Digital forensics is one of the fastest growing areas in the IT industry. The growing need for companies and governments to comply with regulations concerning data protection and adequate incident response means that most large organisations now need computer security and/or digital forensics specialists.
The modules within this theme are delivered in partnership with 7Safe (Cambridge), who deliver a set of well established and respected professional training courses. For each of those hands-on modules DMU provides an academic assessment opportunity that explores and examines in an intellectually rigorous manner the wider academic context of the hands-on course content. In this way you will acquire both the professional practical skills and meet the international intellectual standards required for an MSc award.
Management: Management is designed to equip students with the necessary skills and abilities to enable them to undertake complex business planning that is of great relevance to the modern global business environment. Management has developed as an academic discipline and profession, whereby the skills that it has been traditionally associated with have expanded beyond construction and engineering workplaces. Today, management is of relevance to all business fields, from the financial sector through to healthcare and information technology. New product development, change management, software development and event management are examples of the type of projects benefitting from a structured management approach. Management is only available as a mixed pathway.
