Introduction

Cybercriminals are using sophisticated techniques to infiltrate IT systems and steal valuable data. Help businesses and organisations to fight back by building cyber security knowledge and skills with our BSc Computer Science with Cyber Security degree.

Designed to fill an emerging global skills gap, our fast-growing course will take your interest in computer science, and enhance it with a specialist cyber focus. Accredited by the BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, our course will build your understanding of the inner workings of programmes, operating systems and networks, so you understand how cyber-attacks happen.

As you complete specially-designed projects, you will develop the ability to think conceptually and cultivate independent technical judgement, as you prepare for future security-related roles. We’ll ensure you adopt a professional approach, making you aware of laws, regulations and competencies needed to work with other IT professionals.

You will:

  • Learn how to diagnose attacks and use forensics to determine the extent of damage
  • Develop an understanding of cryptography to address security concerns
  • Know how to preserve evidence so you can work within an ethical framework
  • Build risk management knowledge so you can actively manage threats
