About

In the first year of this course, it provides students a general grounding in computing skills and introduces students to the fundamental aspects of computer security. Students will also gain technical skills in both computer networks and computer systems that they will build on in later years. In the following years, students will develop technical skills in network security, and hacking attacks and defenses as well as in biometrics and biometric-based security systems. In the final year, cryptography and malicious software are covered in some detail. Practical work in the specialist modules and the final year project will involve the development of appropriate security software. Furthermore, as part of studying network security students will cover the CISCO networking syllabus for Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Routing and Switching and then the follow on CCNA Security syllabus. Students will have an opportunity to take the industry-standard ECCouncil Ethical Hacker Certification. APU has placement students in a variety of organisations, including GCHQ, Police High Tech Crime Units, Cyber Security and Digital Forensic businesses.
