Computer Forensics

Learn how to find digital information that people may have tried to hide, and how to analyse data in order to illuminate wrong-doing. Develop expertise in the requirements for locating, preserving and presenting reliable evidence, and in the use of ethical hacking to identify, access and recover information that is held in ‘secure’ digital media. The course is excellent preparation for jobs in computer forensics, which is a rapidly growing area given the rise in computer-related crime. At the same time, the course also covers all the fundamentals of computing, leaving your career options open. Core topics include web applications, database systems, programming and software development. Teaching is fully up-to-date with the latest developments and is enriched by Sunderland’s research that has been classed as 'internationally excellent' by the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF).
