Cybersecurity and Artificial Intelligence
Department of Computer Science,
Faculty of Engineering
This course combines two disciplines: cybersecurity and artificial intelligence (AI).
Cybersecurity is one of the most pressing problems of our time and artificial intelligence has made great advances in recent years. Skills in both areas are very much in demand. You'll receive a grounding in the fundamentals of cybersecurity and AI. There are taught modules in each of these disciplines and you’ll carry out a project that addresses a research problem (or problems) at the interface of the two.
