Faculty / Directorate

An opportunity has arisen to join the rapidly growing Cyber Technology Institute at DMU as a Software System Engineer. The role will be embedded in the Cyber Technology Institute's Cyber Security Centre. The CTI is strongly supported by major industries such as Airbus Group, Deloitte, Rolls-Royce and BT as well as a recognised Airbus Group Centre of Excellence for SCADA Cyber Security Research.
