Course content

Accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS), this Master’s degree aims to address the legislative, technical and practical issues for those engaged in digital data, mobile and network forensic investigations.

Forensic Computing is not only being used to solve crimes, such as computer hacking, child pornography, terrorism, tax evasion and drug smuggling, but is also increasingly being used to recover lost, fragmented and deleted information in a modern world now dominated by Big Data and cloud storage.

Coventry offers facilities that enable you to develop an understanding of essential hardware and commercial software systems, formats, protocols and standards. Our graduates can be found working in industry, law enforcement, intelligence and security, for organisations like GCHQ.
