Computer forensics is a new discipline addressing the collection, processing, and analysis of digital information so that this information can be admitted as evidence in a court of law. It is interdisciplinary in its nature with the inclusion of computer engineering, computer science, information technology, law, and ethics.
The M.S. in Computer Forensics will prepare graduates for careers in law enforcement and various other branches of government, and in the corporate sector such as banking and finance, by combining academic education with real world practical techniques, and by offering advanced training in analyzing digital evidence, in intrusion forensics, and in legal and ethical issues.
