Students given security masterclass to help find IT graduate opportunities

Published: Monday, 25 October 2010   Category: Science, Engineering and IT

A university in the Midlands is helping its students to prepare fully for graduate jobs in IT security with a number of targeted courses.

The University of Coventry offers a BSc in Ethical Hacking and Network Security and an MSc in Computer Forensics, SC Magazine reports.

In addition, the higher education institution has now joined forces with security specialist Nettitude to ready graduates for the complicated fight against cyber crime.

"If we can help graduates to get there first on that career ladder, along with much needed exposure to the security industry, then we are keen to be involved," Nettitude managing director Rowland Johnson told the news provider.

"All of our interns and graduates are closely supervised and mentored so that they can gain some real world experience without actually working on live client environments."

Last week, value-added reseller Softcat welcomed 15 graduates to its new offices in Moorgate, London after giving them three weeks of intensive training.
