Forensic computing is the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques in the interests of determining potential legal evidence. Evidence might be sought in a wide range of computer crime or misuse, including but not limited to theft of trade secrets, theft or destruction of intellectual property, and fraud.
This course will provide students with the skills and knowledge required in order to apply computing and forensic science to crime investigation. Students will be able to expand their knowledge of how computers operate and communicate, as well as issues related to networking and Web technologies, in order to develop the skills required to be able to use computers as a crime investigative tool. The course comprises both advanced computer science and particular developments in forensic sciences.
The course is supported by external collaboration with the government forensic laboratory.
