Master of Philosophy (MPhil) in Cyber Engineering
Pending MHEC Approval, Starting Summer 2023
Earn a Master of Philosophy in Cyber Engineering and develop critical analysis skills in information and cyber security, computer engineering, systems networking, and business management.
The M.Phil. in Cyber Engineering is an exploration of the cybersecurity risks within the industry and how to implement research, technical skills, and knowledge to mitigate these risks. Students will learn the principles and ethics behind cyber engineering, as well as the laws and rights to privacy behind scientific inquiry. Students will also apply computer forensics and incident handling procedures, examine malicious software, analyze and engineer software, and perform research in this field of study. The need for experienced professionals in the field of cyber engineering is growing, as these individuals are crucial to developing greater strongholds against the increase in cybercrime targeted at our many technology-reliant systems.
The M.Phil. in Cyber Engineering is designed as a degree in research where students will quickly engage in leadership, research, and publishing. It is aimed at those that may want to explore research studies before starting a doctorate in research, or those seeking career advancement opportunities through a higher degree.
The M.Phil. program is structured for experienced professionals in this field with an appropriate undergraduate degree. During the program, students will conduct original research in an approved area of Cyber Engineering.
The completion of this program requires the student to produce, present, and defend a master's dissertation after receiving the required approvals from the student’s Committee and the Academic Review Board.
For continued study, see our PhD in Offensive Cyber Engineering.
