What will I learn?

**The University of Greenwich has a long-standing relationship with the British Computer Society (BCS), which accredits our computing degree programmes. As this programme was extensively updated in 2019, it has a current designation of Initial Full Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP) and Partial Chartered Engineer (CEng) accreditation for the 2019 intake. The accreditation status is expected to be confirmed in autumn 2022 after the first cohort of students graduate. Students will be kept updated on the status of this, in the very unlikely event that this does not progress as expected the university will support students with individual BCS membership applications at the point of graduation.****This degree equips you with the investigative skills, tools and techniques that are fundamental to computer security and forensics.**On this computer security and forensics degree, you will gain practical experience in using current generation tools and techniques for developing, maintaining and designing secure computer systems.
