Alternatively, the project work may document the ability to deal with a practical aspect of information security. The project represents the key difference between the Postgraduate Diploma, which is a taught qualification, and the award of an MSc which incorporates this substantial piece of individual work
An average of at least 50% in the Core element is required before proceeding to the Project.
If you complete the course successfully, you should be able to:
- Work independently on a security-related project, for which they have defined the objectives and rationale
- Apply knowledge about aspects of information security to a particular problem, which may be of an engineering, analytical or academic nature, and
- produce a well-structured report, including introduction, motivation, analysis, and appropriate references to existing work.
This module is assessed by your dissertation and a two hour unseen written examination. This is then combined with the results in the other two elements to determine your qualification for the degree.
