This is one of our suite of computing courses that equip you to work in our region’s thriving software and ICT sector. The North East ranks as no.2 region in the UK for the number of software companies, second only to London, so there are excellent opportunities for exciting careers.
In this course, you will learn how to find digital information that people may have tried to hide, and how to analyse data in order to illuminate wrong-doing.
You will develop expertise in the requirements for locating, preserving and presenting reliable evidence and in the use of ethical hacking to identify, access and recover information that is held in ‘secure’ digital media.
The course is excellent preparation for jobs in computer forensics, which is a rapidly growing area given the rise in computer-related crime. At the same time the course also covers all the fundamentals of computing, leaving your career options open. Core topics include web applications, database systems, programming and software development.
We encourage our students to undertake a year-long placement between the second and final years, although it is not compulsory. It’s a great opportunity to get paid to put your learning into practice and to extend your experience.
