What will I learn?

With high profile incidents like the recent WannaCry and Petya ransomware attacks making headlines, there is an increasing demand for highly trained individuals who can advise businesses and organisations, government and law enforcement agencies alike on the best ways to protect their computer networks and the valuable, commercially sensitive information stored within them.

In this cybersecurity course, students are trained to gain a comprehensive understanding of general computer systems technology & specialist security topics such as ethical hacking, digital forensics & encryption algorithms.

We essentially cover two core themes: general purpose computer systems technology and specialist security topics in the computing field, including ethical hacking, digital forensics and encryption algorithms. This combination aims to enable you to devise methods to test a system’s security in the future, apply appropriate defences against threats and possess the technical computing skills needed to break into systems that have vulnerabilities.

This programme consists of 15 modules with exemptions; the full programme consists of 20 modules.
