Research opportunities

We provide Surrey undergraduate and masters students opportunities to be exposed to cyber security research in addition to their normal curriculum.

There are possibilities to get industry and/or governmental support for some of the opportunities through programmes like industry internships:

It is also possible to combine these opportunities with your final-year projects (for undergraduates) and dissertation projects (for masters students). In many cases, it will be possible for you to work with and get help from our current PhD students and/or postdoctoral research assistants, always under the supervision of at least one SCCS core member.
