Course Details

ESSEX MSc computer networks and Security course cannot be monitored without significant security issues, without secure networks, businesses, commerce and telecommunications will all fail. This course addresses the need for modern computer professionals. It covers topics such as current and future internet policies, programs and programs to communicate and protect these programs. Providing a practical tool for the functionality of laboratory systems in software engineer and computer communications, lab work safely covers different areas where attackers' techniques can be employed and stop using advanced security tools. 

The aim of this degree is to provide an introduction to computer programming with little or no previous experience. The Python language is used in the Linux environment, and you will be given a comprehensive introduction to both. The emphasis is on developing the practical skills necessary to write effective programs, with examples taken principally from the realm of data processing and analysis. You will learn how to manipulate and analyze data, graph them and fit models to them. Eventually you will cover how to secure a network by applying methods to sense, mitigate and/or stop attacks. Based on the supposition that public networks will always be open to compromise, this course introduces techniques to secure transmitted data, including the management of encryption systems and communication. A general introduction illustrates the major features of a network, how they interact and introduce the notion of an intelligent network. Switching is an vital requirement and the ideas behind circuit, packet and cell switching are presented.

Essex school is a community of leading experts in technology research and development. Today's computer scientists are creative people who are focused and committed, but are undeniable and experimental.
