As attempts to breach these security systems become more sophisticated, preventing unauthorised access is an important role in society.

Plus, there's an opportunity to undertake CompTIA Security+ certification - further recognition for your superior technical skills and expertise in computer security. The University is recognised as a Centre of Excellence for information security and computer forensics by the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC).As part of your BSc (Hons) Computer Security degree, we strongly recommend you spend up to a year working in industry in the UK or abroad.
