Our BSc (Hons) Cyber Security award is designed to launch your future career in the protection of software and hardware against malicious threats. Our course is designed to not only give you a theoretical foundation in cyber security, but to give you a practical and expert-level knowledge in a specialist area of the field which can range from network security through to ethical hacking, so you're fully prepared to work in the industry upon graduation.
We focus heavily on the practical element of cyber security, and we back that up with the distinctive facilities including a dedicated laboratory, with its own private internal network, containing some of the latest equipment and software. We have access to external specialists from the Police and industry both for guest lectures and Q&A sessions. The version of EnCase we use in the lab is the version used by law enforcement. We are equipped to perform both ‘PC’ based investigations, as well as mobile forensics (on smartphones, and sat nav’s etc).
We offer more than just a degree too, so you’ll be ahead of the competition as soon as you graduate. Alongside your studies, you will have the opportunity to complete industry-recognised certifications in EnCase, MicroSystemation XRY and Cellebrite UFED. Our courses are also designed with input from Google, Amazon, and Cisco. In some modules you can elect to study for certifications from Amazon, Cisco, or Microsoft (you will be advised as to which certifications you can study as you progress through your course).
On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: BSc (Hons) Cyber Security)
