Digital Forensics BSc (Hons)

Digital Forensics is concerned with identifying, reporting and responding to security breaches. On this course you will learn how to acquire, analyse and report digital evidence and gain the technical skills to discover electronic traces of cyber crime.

Course content is informed by research from DMU’s Cyber Technology Institute, meaning you will study up-to-date, industry-relevant topics, including cryptography, issues in criminal justice and network forensics, during your degree.

Core modules will equip you with fundamental skills, where you will learn the powerful programming language of C, and explore computer systems and networks. You will then focus on modules in digital forensics, covering topics such as Windows Forensics, Linux Security and Software and Security Management. During your studies you will have access to equipment and software that is widely used by forensic investigators in law enforcement and e-discovery.

You can also enhance your employability by choosing from a range of optional modules, such as Professionalism in Forensics and Security where you will learn about the legal and professional context of cyber security, software engineering, computer science and digital forensics.

This course is designed to prepare you for career paths in digital forensics, in roles such as security analysts, penetration testers, forensic investigators and cyber security engineers.
