Introduction

This new degree has been developed with advice from local employers to ensure you are gaining the skills and knowledge that they look for in graduates starting a career in the various fields within the Cyber Security industry.

We have built upon a strong foundation, influenced by the digital security modules of our previous Computing &Information Systems degree, by enhancing these and complimenting them with a range of new modules that ensure you will develop knowledge and experience in several of the latest technologies.

This includes introducing a new Cloud Computing module at level 4 where students will learn how to set up and manage Secure Amazon AWS Cloud services, and students will be provided with free access to NetAcad, which is Cisco’s VLE for studying the latest Cisco Cyber Security qualifications, which are highly sought after by employers.

Students on the course will be eligible to receive 50% discount vouchers to optionally undertake the official Cisco examinations.

This course follows a pre-determined pathway of modules, that ensure you initially gain a strong foundation in core computer science subjects, including an introduction to programming and the essentials of networking, before moving on to more complex topics.

It is ideal if you are looking to develop a strong set of cyber security skills, including modules in the Principles of Digital Security, e-commerce & e-crime, Cryptography, Digital Forensics and Ethical Hacking. You will also develop skills in subjects that compliment cyber security, such as Management of IT, SQL Database Development and you can choose to study either Object Oriented Programming or Advanced Network Routing and Switching at level 5, depending on if you intend to pursue a career in either the software or hardware security fields. We will help you develop a systematic, creative and flexible approach to problem solving that computing professionals rely on.
