Gain an in-depth understanding of artificial intelligence concepts, principles and technologies affecting cyber security. Learn to implement AI to monitor and protect against cyber attacks.
If you’re a network engineer, cyber security specialist or computer scientist with a relevant degree looking to gain expertise in AI techniques applied to cyber security, this course will meet your needs.
Our MSc Artificial Intelligence with Cyber Security is designed to prepare you in the area of network, information and computer security, focusing on the strategic implementation of AI-enabled security methods.
Study with ARU in Cambridge and learn in a business-focused context that will allow you to assess new and existing cyber security threats and apply AI techniques to minimise them.
The security of business systems and data is vital. Most security vendors claim to do some kind of AI in their solutions, either to spot malicious behaviour patterns or to add support to overloaded security operation centres.
AI is clearly changing how security vendors approach threat detection, yet AI in security is still in its infancy.
This Masters in Artificial Intelligence with Cyber Security degree will give you skills and knowledge to stay ahead of the game as you learn to implement AI to monitor and protect against cyber attacks.
You’ll consider the legal, economic, societal and ethical issues that an AI-based cyber system might impact on and learn how to implement IT strategies to conform to the appropriate professional, regulatory and ethical guideline constraints.
As a postgraduate student at ARU you’ll also have the opportunity to engage with real-life business problems through our guest lectures. These will give you an understanding of business needs in this area and help prepare you for your future career.
This is one of three postgraduate degrees in AI and cyber security on offer at ARU. You can also choose to focus on data modelling and machine learning with our MSc Artificial Intelligence and Big Data, or learn to implement and test secure systems with MSc Cyber Security.
