Computer Forensics Degrees in the UK

Study Computer Forensics Degrees

Computer forensics is the branch of computer science that deals with the extraction of data from digital and mobile devices. This is a process normally required by the authorities, when they need to get information about a potential suspect or victim from their devices. A professional is needed to perform this extraction, as the data and devices can be easily corrupted.

An undergraduate degree in computer forensics will cover the basics of the area, before progressing onto the more complex and specialised concepts. You might study modules on cyber security, file systems, digital forensics, general law enforcement legal collection methods, and operating systems.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include degrees and seminars, as well as practical and computer laboratory sessions. The practical sessions will allow you to practice your skills in a simulated situation. You may be required to take part in a work placement module.
