Computing (Networks, Cyber Security and Forensics)

Course summary

Learn how to identify and prevent malicious cyber-attacks. Master the art of digital forensic analysis and learn how to set up secure computer networks on a degree accredited by BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT (subject to re-approval). Computer networks are no longer limited to rows of PCs wired to servers in a corporate office. Any connected devices can now form a network. It’s your smart phone, door lock, tablet, fridge, camera, even your light bulbs and thermostat. Modern networks are wireless and spread everywhere. Our data has never been more valuable or more vulnerable. For families, businesses and governments, the systems and information in their networks are valuable assets. This degree gives you the skills and knowledge to run professional networks and keep them safe from cyber criminals. You’ll work on real-life projects in our £13m Tech Hub laboratories and workspaces. Go beyond technical network administration to learn tools and techniques in IT and project management. You’ll study computer theory, network security and forensics then cement your knowledge by putting it into practice on our computer security degree.
