All students will take the core modules, which are designed to give a comprehensive introduction to this specialist field. The course will cover basic digital forensics and network security, and computer system tools and the Linux/UNIX operating system. It will also deal with digital evidence in a professional manner (that includes adhering to appropriate legal guidelines).

You will then follow either the Cyber Security or Digital Forensics pathway within the course (though each lead to the same named degree: the pathways are simply opportunities to specialize within the field). In addition, all students will take a Research Methods module and complete a project module.

The course offers the opportunity to examine a variety of tools available on the open market and the use of forensic tools to retrieve data from electronic sources. It will also consider the analysis of professional and ethical issues relating to computer security and forensics, and the development of professional competencies, such as report writing and presenting evidence in court.
