MSc Computer Networks and Cyber Security is a specialist programme that will develop your skills and knowledge to design, implement and troubleshoot enterprise core networks. You will learn how to protect IT infrastructure from threats and attacks by conducting real-time pen testing and digital forensics.
We are the only university to offer this unique degree programme that covers:
We have the best networking and cybersecurity lab in Wales.
Reasons to choose this course
Industry recognised CCNP, CEH and CHFI curriculum are part of the programme.
Taught by staff with academic and industry qualifications who constantly update the programme to reflect rapidly developing networking and security field.
The emphasis is on three key themes within this programme; Routing and Switching, Security and Forensics.
Access to state-of-art networking and security lab facilities.
Hands on experience with Cisco hardware and software.
This programme aims to provide in-depth knowledge and skills in the specialist area of networking and security.
It has been developed in response to the need for personnel equipped with the skills needed to design, implement and troubleshoot an enterprise computer network infrastructure.
The course is designed primarily for science and technology graduates who have some prior knowledge of computing and/or networking and who wish to specialise in computer networking.
Successful completion of the Programme offers the eligibility for registration by the British Computer Society (BCS) of Chartered IT Professional (CITP) full status.
Graduates will undertake a range of tasks associated with networking in organisations and will be capable of developing sophisticated solutions to networking and security problems.
They may be required to manage teams of network associates/engineers within an enterprise environment either on a small or large-scale project.
In order to achieve this, they will require a significant technical understanding of the issues arising and have an appreciation of the complexity of the tasks.
Within an SME, a senior member of the development staff with both development and management duties often fulfils this role and a significant aspect of the programme is the development of the necessary management skills for this purpose.
As either a senior network engineer or manager, the graduate would be expected to demonstrate their initiative and be able to use their research skills to rapidly adapt to the demands of new technology.
Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
Applicants require an Honours Degree (2.2 or above) or advanced qualification in Computer Science or cognate discipline from a UK University or recognised overseas institution, or industrial experience in Computer Networking and an Honours Degree.

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) is the oldest higher education institution in Wales and one of the newest. In 2022 it will celebrate 200 years since the original Lampeter campus was founded in 1822. Its 1828 Royal Charter is the third oldest in the UK after Oxford and Cambridge. A merger of the University of Wales Lampeter and Trinity University College Carmarthen in 2010, followed by Swansea Metropolitan University joining in 2013, created the university people we know today.
As a result of these mergers, UWTSD has its three main campuses in Carmarthen, Lampeter and Swansea. The university now also has a campus in London. In addition to that, there are UWTSD learning centres in Cardiff and Birmingham.
UWTSD also provides a variety of ways to study.
