Outline

Outline

This course provides coverage of aspects of modern computing. It covers fundamental programming and theoretical knowledge followed by an opportunity to specialise in Cyber Security The courses offers coverage of the key concepts and challenges in data and resource protection and computer software security. There are a focus on both the high level (e.g. cryptography theory and data access policy development and security program management) and low level practical (e.g. computer forensics, network intrusion detection and incident handling) aspects of computer security. The addition of programming techniques differentiates this course from more policy-based options. The aim of this course is to prepare the students for the areas of ICT stated to be most in-demand and for positions that are most difficult to fill.

What you'll learn

  • implement secure processes based on best practice when developing software and dealing with computer systems
  • evaluate standard algorithms, techniques, and software technologies in a manner that is appropriate for a given problem and think critically and creatively to generate innovative and optimum theoretical and practical solutions
  • identify, evaluate and synthesise information from a range of computing sources to optimise the process of software design and implementation
  • document software development activities and artefacts and communicate them in written and oral form to both technical and non-technical audiences and communicate effectively in ways appropriate to the audience and purpose
