Course Summary

This course also explores strategies employed in forensic investigation. It gives you the space and opportunity to develop your own area of interest in a research project where your supervisor enables you to maximize your skill sets from academic writing to data analytics. The work boundaries of the traditional police intelligence analyst and digital forensic investigator are becoming blurred – today’s analysts need to be cyber aware, understanding how communication records and web search histories can be extracted and analyzed. This course covers these areas as well as theories that provide a better sense of the causes of crime and the prevention measures that can be put in place to stabilize and reverse these trends. Analysts shouldn’t be phased by data simply because of its size, complexity or format. This course provides you with the skills to work effectively with large datasets, allowing you to make more informed decisions in relation to criminal investigations. Key features include writing code to quickly clean up data and packaging it so it’s suitable for analysis and visualization. You could expect to apply for intelligence researcher and intelligence analyst roles in a wide variety of career opportunities ranging from security, policing and business. Students will also achieve PgDip awards in this course.
