BSc (Hons) Ethical Hacking and Network Security

BSc (Hons) Ethical Hacking and Network Security
@ National Institute of Business Management - NIBM

The BSc (Hons) Ethical Hacking and Network Security degree, awarded by Coventry University UK 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 UK.

Studying Ethical Hacking and Cyber Security at Coventry University will provide you with the opportunity to learn to identify and analyse the threats posed to modern information structures and develop the knowledge and skills to be able to advise a company on how to set up secure systems.

Coventry University has over 10 years’ experience of teaching cyber security, producing graduates who have gone on to successful careers in the sector. Previous graduates have gone on to become security consultants, security engineers, penetration testers and other sector specific roles.

  • Have a clearly targeted and developed set of skills in computer science with special emphasis on security
  • Identify and analyse the threats posed to modern information structures and will be able to apply defences against such threats
  • Devise methods of testing a system’s security and possess the skills needed to break into systems that have vulnerabilities
