Computer Forensics

With digital forensics playing a critical role in the world of modern criminal investigations, our BSc Computer Forensics has been developed to meet the demands of this evolving profession. You will gain excellent technical and theoretical skills encompassing the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of data recovered from computer based devices such as PCs, mobile phones, tablets, network equipment and other data storage devices to establish factual evidence in a manner that is admissible in a court of Law. The course also covers the English legal system, handling and preserving evidence, courtroom skills, and expert witness skills, plus professional reporting, and personal and organisational ethics. You’ll be based at Millennium Point – part of our City Centre campus – where you’ll have access to a specialist computer forensic laboratory, equipped to the standards set out by ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers of England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Throughout your course, you’ll be supported by expert teaching staff whose credentials include a highly respected digital forensics expert who has worked with organisations across Europe. The course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). All accreditations will be renewed in accordance with the accreditor’s standard review process and subject to the University maintaining the same high standards of course delivery.
