The MSc in Cybercrime Investigation has been designed to provide an in-depth study of Cybercrime Investigation and develop critical and analytical skills involving the principles, practices and techniques of Cybercrime Investigation.

The course is a natural development building on the success of existing undergraduate provision in the Schools of Forensic and Investigative Science, Psychology and Computing Engineering and Physical Sciences, in particular the interest of students studying cybercrime.

Cybercrime is a relatively new and growing area of criminal investigation. The course is delivered in partnership with existing staff members from the School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences, Forensic and Investigative Sciences, and Psychology.

The profiles of existing staff members and specialist visiting speakers make them uniquely qualified in the UK HE sector to deliver this course in that, as well as having appropriate academic backgrounds, they have experience in investigation unmatched in any UK HE institution.
