Course summary

Introduction

BSc (Hons) Forensic Computing & Security is ideal if you are particularly interested in a career involving computer forensics and/or computer security. Computer forensics and computer security is an expanding field, covering not only computers but other computing systems such as mobile devices, satellite navigation systems, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. This course will give you the skills and knowledge that is necessary to excel in the security and/or forensics industry.

On this course, you are supported by academics with considerable experience in the security industry. The Cyber Security Research Group (BUCSR) are actively engaged in cutting edge research, and you will be encouraged to participate in a range of co-creation and co-publication projects, drawing on the expertise and knowledge of not only the staff within our department, but also other colleagues from across the university and experts from other institutions in the UK and Europe.

We understand that computing is a diverse subject and that it can be difficult to know what area you’d like to specialise in at this stage in your career. That’s why all of our courses within the computing framework share a common first year, giving you the time to really explore the subject before deciding on a specialism. There are courses that allow you to keep a relatively wide focus, as well as degrees that provide a greater level of specialism, giving you plenty of flexibility when it comes to which direction you want your career to take.

Course details

On this course you will be taught by a range of staff with relevant expertise and knowledge appropriate to the content of the unit. This will include senior academic staff, qualified professional practitioners, demonstrators, technicians and research students. You will also benefit from regular guest lectures from industry.

Placements

At BU, we recognise that placements are extremely valuable and can give you a head start when it comes to your future career. That’s why we offer every new student the opportunity to undertake a work placement as part of their course.

Careers

This degree will provide you with a broad range of technical computing knowledge, as well as allowing you to specialise in the forensic aspect of computing, covering investigation and IT security. This will make you a diverse professional who is equipped to take on a variety of roles once you graduate. 95% of our students on this course are working or studying six months after graduating.
