Student Stories

Pauline Finlay, Secure Software Development

Following on from my degree studies, I was seeking an opportunity to expand my knowledge of secure coding practices, particularly in terms of web applications. The course is delivered language independent allowing each student to focus on the actual coding weaknesses and vulnerabilities and the best practices for their remediation rather than on an unfamiliar coding language. The course not only covers the good coding practices but also how system vulnerabilities can impact the security posture of an organisation in terms of professional standards

David O’Reilly, Secure Systems Architecture

The knowledge and experience I gained while completing the Cyber Skills pathway will provide a positive impact on my career. It has provided me with the core fundamentals of Secure System Architecture and given me an understanding of how to ensure that security is at the core of any solutions I am involved in designing. It has also enabled me to assist team members ensuring their designs adhere to industry security standards

Chloe Rocks, Secure Network Operations

I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Cyber Skills student; the lecturers were very knowledgeable in their field and made a point to make the information as up to date as possible; particularly Dr. O’Mahony who updated us on current threats and attacks as they happened in real-time and how they could possibly be counteracted/prevented. The lab environments were very well developed, and the course content as a whole felt very relevant to my workplace. I believe I gained valuable skills and knowledge undertaking this pathway, and it has broadened my view of network security as a whole. I am very interested in further Cyber Skills pathways in the future, and I think it will become a worthy qualification to hold
