BSc (Hons) Computing (Cyber Security)

About Program

This course is provided as a pathway on our BSc (Hons) Computing degree. All students begin their studies on the BSc (Hons) Computing degree before choosing the cyber security pathway towards the end of their first year of study. Students who complete this pathway will receive the specialist BSc (Hons) Computing (Cyber Security) award at graduation.

As more time is spent online, the amount of data we create increases. Often this data contains personal or sensitive information that is vulnerable to cyber-attacks. The networks and systems themselves can also be disrupted causing millions in damages and lost revenue. The cyber security pathway on our BSc (Hons) Computing degree provides you with the skills and knowledge to prevent and defend from these attacks.

There has never been a better time to begin your career as a cyber security professional. Global spending on cyber security alone is expected to exceed £68 billion by 2025. Here in the UK, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) reports around 60 ‘high-level’ cyber-attacks a month, many of which threaten national security.

Course Highlights:

  • Access to our state-of-the-art cyber security range allowing students to simulate attack and defence scenarios 
  • Learn how to secure enterprise computer networks in our new Juniper Networking Lab 
  • Access to resources from some of the largest tech companies including Amazon Web Services, Juniper, Oracle and our new Google Student Club 
  • An opportunity to start your own cyber security business with the University of Suffolk’s Innovation Centre (IWIC) and gain guidance from business leaders and academics.

Our cyber security pathway combines a solid grounding in computer systems with the expertise required for a successful career in the field of cyber security.

By the completion of this degree, we prepare you to take the certification exams for (ISC)2’s Certified Secure Software Lifecycle Professional (CSSLP) and Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) qualifications – should you wish.
