BSc (Hons) Ethical Hacking and Network Security

The BSc (Hons) Ethical Hacking and Network Security degree, awarded by Coventry University has been developed to produce graduates who have a good theoretical understanding of Network Security, Ethical hacking, digital forensics and the underlying computer science. In addition, through non-trivial technical projects, open-ended tasks and high expectations, we expect our graduates to be capable of the technical work expected of the industry.

Network Security is fast becoming the most pressing and least understood problem for many individuals, businesses and nations. The landscape itself is difficult to visualise, built on layer upon layer of evolving computing equipment, networks, protocols and software. The ways in which it can be exploited are innumerable, with new vulnerabilities discovered daily

Upon completion of this degree, you will receive a qualification awarded by Coventry University.
