**What our students say**
"Throughout my whole degree, I've loved the subject and the material. The course is very intuitive, and lets you get hands-on in some subjects, so you get the feel of the real world. I definitely would recommend it if you like computers, hacking and forensics."
Diogo FIlipe Coito Gomes, second year student
"Studying Computer Forensics and IT Security has given me the foundation to go on and utilise my skills in a world where cyber security has become a major concern. The course itself covers a wide range of fun in-class activities as well as interesting and challenging assignments that cover real-life scenarios undertaken by detectives and hackers too!
And because the facilities are so great, I am able to simulate real attacks within a controlled environment. These activities help me understand how attacks occur and consequently help prevent them. The lab has many interesting tools available such as Kali Linux, BackTrack5, Encase, FTK and many more.
The whole subject area is always on stand-by to help pupils better their skills. Having viewed other universities and seen their facilities, I am happy that I chose to come here to London Met."
