Manchester Metropolitan University
Computer and Network Security
The course aims to provide students with the skills to design, implement and manage computer-based systems security, using software and networking technologies. This title also includes the basic, key elements of forensic computing: forensics and the legal and ethical issues involved in any digital investigation. Students will gain a broad understanding of the different levels of computer and network security together with the basic phases of a forensic investigation and of computing in general. They will examine wireless communication systems; networks; operating systems and interfacing socket programming; servers and their security implications; and the planning and implementation of network security management, including security, risk analysis and disaster recovery planning.
You will normally have at least a 2nd-Class UK Honours degree (or international equivalent) in a computing-related subject, or exceptionally, a good sub-degree qualification in computing and very substantial work experience in computing or a closely-related area.
Core Units: Advanced computer networks and operating systems; introduction to computer forensics and security; advanced network security; cryptography and encryption; msc computer and network security project.
Assessment will be through coursework, examination and dissertation.
