2. Course description

Recent years have witnessed the emergence of a technical skills gap in the IT industry, caused by the marked lack of appropriate higher level qualifications. The BSc (Hons) Network Engineering (Cyber Security) programme, which is accredited through the British Computer Society, aims to redress the balance. It provides students with a trusted route through to their chosen career and employers with the technical experts needed to positively impact their business. This is a one year top up degree which follows on from the successful completion of the FdSc Network Engineering (Cyber Security). A winning combination of technical, academic and transferable skills equips graduates to take up positions as cyber security consultant, lead penetration tester, cyber security contractor or managers within the IT and related industries.

3. Entry requirements

Only students who have studied the Foundation Degree in Network Engineering (Cyber Security) at Blackpool and The Fylde College and have achieved a minimum of a pass will be considered for this top-up course.

4. Equipment required

Resources required to achieve the learning outcomes of the programme are provided by the College. You should be aware that there may be additional costs to consider such as optional educational visits and photocopying/printing.

5. Assessment method

Most courses are assessed via a combination of coursework, exams and practical assessments. Exams are formal, timed written assessments, carried out in a controlled environment and overseen by one or more invigilators. Coursework differs from exams in that it is usually non-timed and carried out independently. Practical assessments involve observation of your practical skills and competencies by a trained assessor.
