Mathematics of Cybersecurity

Preserving the security of computers, connected devices and their data becomes more important every year. Mathematics plays a key role in both preventing and modelling security breaches, with many cybersecurity tools and algorithms being based on mathematical ideas. This postgraduate programme gives you a rigorous introduction to the underpinning theories in mathematics and will equip you with modern tools to implement them. You will gain a qualification and skills in an area where there is a recognised skills shortage in the employment market. The School of Mathematics has more than doubled in size over the last decade; in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, 87 per cent of our mathematical sciences research was recognised as world-leading or internationally excellent.
