Current Modules


An operating system (OS) is system software that manages computer hardware, software resources and provides an interface for the user. This module will provide students with working knowledge and practical skills of OS installation, configuration, utilities and scripting. It will utilise hypervisor technology to examine both Windows and Linux operating systems.

Secure Systems Administration

Aim of this module is to provide learners with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to deploying and administer a secure computer system. This module initially examines fundamental computer infrastructures and security concepts and then integrates this knowledge into the design and building of a Windows Active Directory domain.

Linux Infrastructure Engineering

This new, elective module will guide learners to effectively design and implement flexible and scalable computing infrastructures, suitable for a wide variety of environments by integrating cluster and container technology. It is based around the LOKI (Linux OpenStack Kubernetes Infrastructure) stack

Infrastructure for Big Data

The primary aim of this Level 9 MSc module is to critically appraise and implement a range of cloud infrastructure technologies available to both store and manipulate big data. This includes setup and configuration of compute clusters, container/microservices and private clouds which are used to run Apache Hadoop technologies such as MapReduce, YARN, HDFS, Spark, HBase, Hive and Pig.

Advanced Incident Handling

As part of the MSc. in Cybercrime, Privacy and Trust the focus of this this online module is to synthesise the techniques, tactics, and procedures that modern adversaries use to target and attack systems and thus facilitate the capability of responding to and defending against incidents as they occur.
