About the course

Digital forensics and security are increasingly in the public eye. Whether it is the theft of a laptop containing secret information, high profile hacking incidents, anti-terrorism operations or controversies surrounding lost data, it is impossible to ignore the importance and excitement surrounding digital forensics and security.

Developed and delivered in conjunction with 7Safe, this course provides you with knowledge of the very latest computer forensics and security principles, practices, tools and techniques, taught by a team of experienced and specialist staff in purpose-built computer forensics and security laboratories. If you are interested in a challenging career in one of the most rapidly expanding areas of computing then this is the course for you.

Most students embark on their MSc after successfully completing one or more 7Safe courses. On successful completion of the 7Safe hands-on training course, you are then eligible to apply to DMU for an academic top-up/assessment by distance learning. Taking the course in this way is normally a part-time pathway and you should expect to study for two-three years. However, you can register directly with DMU for the full degree and the university then manages your attendance and progression through the relevant 7Safe modules and academic assessments. Registering with DMU direct can therefore provide a full-time route through the course.

The full MSc course consists of eight modules (at 15 credits each) and an MSc Project/Dissertation (at 60 credits). Seven of the taught modules are delivered and assessed jointly by De Montfort University staff and 7Safe trainers with the eighth being a stand alone distance learning module that DMU is responsible for. The Project/Dissertation is delivered and assessed by DMU alone. Successful completion of the MSc gives students seven industry recognised professional certificates and the MSc.

Multiple start dates are available please contact the Admissions Team on the contact details below.
