What will you learn?

As computers are an intrinsic part of normal life, they are also important as a tool in criminal activity. Hence, they can provide a vital source of evidence. This award provides a solid grounding in the skills you need to follow a career in forensic investigation of computer systems and related areas of security. The same skills that enable you to track down evidence also equip you with the abilities necessary to help organisations and individuals recover data/information that may have been lost or corrupted as a result of accidental or malicious activity. You can not only detect criminal activity but also help to save people from the consequences of such activity. The first year provides a general grounding in fundamental computing skills and introduces you to the use of standard software tools (e.g. Encase whose use in forensic investigation is recognised by UK courts).

In the following years, you will deepen your knowledge and skills required for the investigation, evidence gathering and forensic analysis of that evidence from computer systems (including mobile devices), as well as understanding the legal context and the role of expert witness testimony. Related areas of computer security are studied to provide a fuller context to your forensic computing studies. You will also extend your underpinning knowledge of computer networks and the hardware and system software of computer systems. We encourage student entrepreneurship with, where feasible and practicable, business start-ups during the placement year and the marketing of any artefact developed from their final year project.

Career prospects

TEACHING AND LEARNING Different people learn in different ways and therefore the programme utilises a range of different teaching methods and situations – lectures, problem-based tutorials, practical laboratory sessions, group-based activities, project work, virtual learning environments, seminars, workshops (skills-based) etc. – that best deliver the specific learning outcomes of the modules. In all classes emphasis is placed on active, experiential learning usually based around a case study, or specific crime/event based scenarios. Students will be actively challenged during tutorials to explain or defend a particular viewpoint/finding/analysis, as the students may in the future be expected to defend their expert witness testimony within a legal environment. The use of industry standard packages, such as Encase and Forensic Tool Kit (FTK), hardware and software will be used with real life case studies to provide good exposure to students. With a dedicated and self-contained laboratory, with its own private internal network and containing some of the latest equipment and software, students will be able to practice and develop their practical and troubleshooting skills as required. Learning approaches are chosen to be compatible to the method of delivery and can include: case studies, investigations, seminars, resource based learning and independent reading. A wide range of teaching, learning and assessment approaches are used and are seen as beneficial in exposing the student to diverse approaches. The emphasis is on developing students as confident, independent learners. Students are encouraged to access a variety of materials, journals, textbooks, e-journals etc., as part of their independent learning. This independent learning is directed, with lecturers providing general reading lists to prepare for or follow-up classes, specific assignment reading as well as a range of formative tasks and activities. All this directed study supports and builds upon the knowledge and skills learnt in class to provide a fuller understanding of the subject.
