Cybersecurity is fast becoming the most pressing and least understood problem for many individuals, businesses and nations. The landscape itself is dif?cult to visualise, built on layer upon layer of evolving computing equipment, networks, protocols and software. The ways in which it can be exploited are innumerable, with new vulnerabilities discovered daily. Coventry University is committed to educating successive generations of cybersecurity researchers and experts â?? from developers that can write secure code, to digital forensics specialists and penetration testers. We have garnered a reputation for teaching excellence and our current staff benefit from a mix of practical experience from industry and law-enforcement, combined with active research in cutting-edge cybersecurity. Current projects include the incorporation of cryptography into network services for centralised management, machine learning for intrusion detection, low-power security systems and the security of embedded devices and the Internet of Things. Our extensive links with industry have helped previous graduates to secure rewarding jobs with security companies, large corporations and government. These relationships also provide various opportunities for industry placements* during your studies, with previous students spending a year working for high profile security consultancy organisations such as BAE Detica, Nettitude and NCC Group. This course is designed to give you the opportunity to equip yourself with the knowledge and skills to lead the fight against cyber criminals and keep hard-earned assets secure. It covers the essentials of computer systems architecture, programming, operating systems and databases, together with specialist topics in digital forensics, legal issues, networking, ethical hacking and computer security. Our Activity-Led Learning (ALL) approach means your education should be hands-on; we aim to help you become familiar with penetration testing tools, encryption algorithms and forensic analysis software. You could also gain an additional industry recognised network certification through the CISCO Academy Programme (competitive application and additional costs may apply). *Industrial placement opportunities may be subject to availability, competitive application, additional costs and meeting applicable visa requirements.
