Our certificate in criminal justice programme is taught part-time and is a nationally recognised qualification.

The programme is broad-based and aims to equip students with an understanding of the rapidly changing criminal justice environment. The course focuses on national, legal and policy issues facing the criminal justice system and it introduces students to the problems facing policy-makers and practitioners.

The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst, or CSA+, is a CompTIA certification focusing on the knowledge and skills required to configure and use threat-detection tools, perform data analysis, and interpreting the results with the end goal of securing an organization’s applications and systems. The CSA+ is a vendor-neutral certification that expects three to four years of experience in a related field as well as a Security+ or equivalent knowledge. In this regard, the CSA+ lies between the security+ as well as the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP) exams and is an excellent go-between to tackle before diving into the CASP, but when the Security+ isn’t enough. With the ongoing requirement for government agencies to receive certifications, the CSA+ was developed with a focus on meeting government requirements to certify IT, workers or contractors. This certification will display an understanding of security best practices and protocols beyond that which is provided by the Security+ and will prove a level of expertise beyond that of basic security practices that are followed when using a computer. This allows any employee to prove a better understanding of enterprise security practices, and the necessary tools needed to protect a company network. The modules of this course align with the official objects of the certification and will expand past the scope of the certification to provide real-life examples as well as lead-ins to direct further study. This will give students more to work off of that simple definition based review and allow for easier understanding of the...

Machine learning is having profound effects in many different industries, from financial services to retail to advertising. It is fast becoming a fundamental tool for making better decisions in business—decisions driven by data, not gut feelings or guesswork.
Today, every business has access to reams of data, whether it’s operational data, customer data, third party data, or supplier data. The question for decision makers becomes: How can I use this data to make informed predictions, take action, and evaluate the outcomes for future decision making?
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is at the forefront of research and practice for this emerging field within data science. Professor Devavrat Shah, who leads the Department of Statistics and Data Science at MIT, takes learners on a deep dive into what’s possible with machine learning....
