Our University started out as a teacher training college in the 1960s in response to a national shortage of teachers. Today we continue to shape our courses and research around critical social issues both nationally and globally. The University has enjoyed substantial growth in student numbers over recent years and we have developed into a broad based University offering some 20,000 students a wide range of programmes. The Kent and Medway Engineering, Design, Growth and Enterprise (EDGE) hub is a new innovative £60m development, planned to open in September 2020. This exciting project will provide a dedicated Engineering space, where students and staff will be able to work on real-world projects in partnership with business. The evolution of Industry 4.0 has seen a paradigm shift in the way in which the engineering industry operates, providing opportunities for smarter operational, environmental and business management. Christ Church are working with business to deliver a suite of Higher Education courses to equip graduates with the skills to learn and adapt to a changing technological landscape across a multitude of disciplines, including Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Product Design and Software Engineering. These specialisms will enable graduates to meet the needs of industry by engaging with and deploying business-focused solutions in the fields of cybersecurity, biometrics, biofuels, automation, and connectivity through the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

 BSc (Hons) Computer Forensics and Security Computer forensics and security are dynamic and growing areas of computing. As cybercrime continues to rise, so does the need for computing professionals to collaborate with multi-disciplinary teams deploying their specialist skills to investigate cybercrime. You will nurture the skills to tackle challenging computing forensics and security issues and study these alongside broader computing topics, using a variety of different tools and techniques, working with a range of tools, programming languages and operating systems.
Cyber space is the artificial environment humans have inhabited and like natural environments it cannot be controlled, but it can be managed.  You will study how cyber security protects organisational ecosystems (including computer systems) from malicious attacks, human error, and the exploitation of vulnerabilities. You will explore how ethical hacking approaches can be used to highlight security vulnerabilities so that they can be fixed or mitigated. Cyber security incidents can have a number of outcomes, including civil litigation or criminal prosecution.  You will develop skills to use computer forensic techniques to recover intelligence and evidence from digital devices for the purposes of both civil litigation and criminal prosecution.
 BSc (Hons) Computer Forensics and Security with Foundation year This course offers you an alternative pathway to access degree level study in Computer Forensics and Security. The course is designed to improve your Computing discipline knowledge, including programming. In addition, the course will equip you with the skills you need to study at undergraduate level and will inform your choice of degree.
