Campus Learning

 

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Network Security and Computer Forensics is targeted at those wishing to enter the Information Technology (IT) sector as Computer Forensic Analysts, Vulnerability Security Research Engineers, Digital Forensic Examiners, Malware Media Forensic Analysts, Forensic Auditors, Network Security Specialists, Computer Crime Investigators or Security Analysts, among other things.

Programme details: The programme consists of core (required) and elective modules as detailed below. Some modules may have pre-requisites (i.e. may require the student to pass another module or set of modules first). Some modules may be co-requisite (i.e. such modules are required to be taken together). The number at the end of the module in parenthesis indicates the credit load of the module. 1 credit is equal to 10 hours of learning (guided, in-class and independent combined); therefore a 10-credit module requires on average 100 hours of learning from the student.
