What will I learn?

This course sets out to create graduates who are at the forefront of Cyber / Forensic Computing both theoretically and practically. This will be evident to students immediately with the distinctive facilities we have and use at the university, including a dedicated, self-contained laboratory, with its own private internal network, containing some of the latest equipment and software. We have access to external specialists from the Police and industry both for guest lectures and Q&A sessions. The version of EnCase we use in the lab is the version used by law enforcement. We are equipped to perform both ‘PC’ based investigations, as well as mobile forensics (smartphones, Sat Nav’s etc.) We offer Industry recognised certification in EnCase, MicroSystemation XRY and Cellebrite UFED. We have a variety of placement opportunities, ranging from SME’s, both local and nationwide, large international / multinational organisations, and the Police and Government Security Agencies. The University has entered into an exciting innovative partnership with Staffordshire Police’s forensics division. This gives us an opportunity for you to work alongside the Police in a variety of projects. Final Year students are involved in a forensic internship, which involves working within the Staffordshire Police High Tech Crime Unit as part of a final year module. The University are also represented on the Online Fraud Forum, under the auspices of the Deputy Police Crime Commissioner of Staffordshire. The Department of Computing at Staffordshire University has an international reputation for outstanding teaching and development of computing professionals with long established relationships with leading companies in the computing industry, and we strive to bring in external speakers and those from industry to provide differing viewpoints of the Computer Science discipline. Our courses are designed with input from Google, Amazon, and Cisco. In some modules you can elect to study for certifications from Amazon, Cisco, or Microsoft (you will be advised as to which certifications you can study as you progress through your course).
