Cyber Security & Computer Forensics BSc(Hons): Links with business and industry

How we work with industry partners

Computing qualifications are amongst the most versatile and enable graduates to find employment in a wide spectrum of careers ranging from systems and business analysts, and software engineers, through to programmers and network specialists in a wide range of public and private sector industries.

Our curriculum is largely applied in nature with many case studies chosen for their topicality and relevance to industry such as information systems design, programming, networking, and implementation issues. Working on case studies designed to simulate the working environment, typically in teams, gives students experience of applying their skills to real-world problems.

To further set the material in context as well as inspire our students leading practitioners from industry, such as Google and IBM are invited to give guest lectures and workshops. The school hosts a local BCS chapter and several members of the School are involved with the institute at corporate level.

Events and lectures

Embedded within the academic year are two Enrichment Activity Weeks. The first is in week 6 of Teaching Block 1 and the second in week 12 of Teaching Block 2, which include Careers and Employability events. These provide students typically with the opportunity to explore their CV and interview skills and look forward and plan for both industrial placement and their employment after university.

KU Talent, the Kingston's award-winning careers service offers a range of events, which include; employers on campus to promote internship, placement and graduate opportunities; profiling specific roles within industry; and exposing students to employers and building skills and knowledge. The current set of events include Part-time jobs fair, Guest lectures, The Big Kingston Careers Fair, Enrichment Week activity, Creative Conference, Work abroad fair.

In addition a range of software development competitions and hackathon type events are organised by the staff and various societies.
