Course overview

This degree brings together two closely related specialist fields to produce a fascinating course of study that is now hugely relevant to our rapidly expanding world.

Information Security is a real growth area - data is an increasingly valuable asset, which means that companies are going to even greater lengths to secure its integrity. Forensic Computing is concerned with the detection and investigating of crimes committed using computers. It is about identifying, preserving, analysing and producing evidence that is admissible in court.
