The first ever computer forensics course in South-East Asia

MDIS - Singapore launches the timeliest Course for Cyber Cops
The highly popular hi-tech Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) television series’ fascinating crime-busting abilities will soon become a reality in South East Asia.

Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS) is collaborating with Nottingham Trent University (School of Science and Technology) to start the first ever computer forensics course in South-east Asia.

The course, which is fast becoming a much sought after study in demand, offers the title “Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Computer Systems (Forensics and Security)”

It is no secret that computer aided crime (better known as Cyber Crime) is becoming more prevalent world over. Therefore, there is an absolute need for experts who are as skillful with their laptops as they are with their detective talents.

The course focuses on cyber crimes and costs $24,000 for Singaporeans and $25,500 for foreigners.
It will employ the EnCase programming software used by cyber security organizations worldwide. This computer forensics product is used to analyze digital media. It is available to law enforcement agencies and Corporations.

The course, which takes two years if done part-time and 18 months if done full-time, will be launched next year, with intakes in February and August. Applicants must have a diploma from a local polytechnic or an Advanced Diploma in Information Technology awarded by MDIS.

Other qualifications from recognized institutions too will be considered. Head of Technology and E-learning - MDIS, said the course is like the computer equivalent of the CSI television series.

Ethics and privacy issues
The course will not just cover cyber crime but aspects like ethics and privacy issues as well as legal and technical implications.

There will also be a module on wireless and mobile communications, so students can be up to date on security issues within these frameworks.

Nottingham Trent University is one of the top three universities in England and Wales for its graduate employability record.

A 2008/2009 survey by the Higher Education Standards Authority shows that 95 per cent of its graduates with first class degrees from full-time study are employed or engaged in further studies within six months of leaving the university. In 2008, the Research Assessment Exercise also
showed that 74 per cent of the university’s research achieved international status and 8 per cent was considered “world-leading”.

It is one of the best new universities in the UK, according to this year’s Complete University Guide.
