Description


Keeping air travellers, cargo, aircraft and company employees safe extends far beyond simply screening passengers and their baggage.


This master’s analyses, evaluates and develops the multi-layered and interconnected processes involved in security management in the high-risk and technology-dependent world of aviation. By doing so, the programme seeks to develop confident, capable, analytical and knowledgeable security management professionals for now and into the future.


We will look at everything from threats, risks and challenges, to impact perspectives, and the multiple organisations, agencies and air travel stakeholders involved. We will explore topics such as aviation and organisational resilience, while also analysing the context and future of secure and safe aviation.


The programme culminates in you completing a research dissertation or project looking at issues that most interest you relating to aviation security, both now and in the future.


You can study by distance learning, balancing your professional and personal commitments alongside your study. We will tailor the way it is delivered based on your particular needs and work profile.


Target Population


This master’s is for anyone whose role involves ensuring security protection is incorporated into aviation operations, or those aspiring to move into this work. You may also be looking to build on your experience and skills in general security management or aviation, and want to specialise.
