Course programme

Our academic support in Forensic Computing has a 95% rating. National Student Survey, 2015 Computer Forensics and Security are interesting, dynamic and growing areas of Computing. As cybercrime continues to rise, so too does the need for computing professionals to lead the fight against it. Computer security involves (amongst other things) protecting computer systems from malicious attacks, human error, and exploitation of vulnerabilities. This includes utilising an ethical hacking approach to highlight security vulnerabilities so that they can be fixed or mitigated. The School of Law, Criminal Justice and Computing, where this programme is housed and taught, has close links with the College of Policing and Europol, and many of our students have gone on to successful careers in the computer forensics and computer security industries. The course provides the opportunity to apply a comprehensive theoretical background to realistic scenarios using popular, industry standard software, hardware and systems. They are taught under the guidance of staff with real-world experience of conducting forensic investigations enabling our graduates to have an immediate productive impact when they begin their careers. Dr Abhaya Induruwa, principal lecturer, who specialises in the field of networking and mobile computer forensics is an inductee into the Internet Hall of Fame (2014) for his role in developing research and Internet deployment in Sri Lanka.
