WHAT WILL I LEARN?

This course will provide you with a sound understanding of essential hardware and software systems, formats, protocols and standards. There is coverage of essential legislation relating to all aspects of computer-based information.

The central focus of the programme will be an in-depth coverage of the available tools and techniques investigating different types of computer-based information sources.
