Robert Gordon University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The course aims to equip students to work as professional engineers and consultants in the design, configuration and management of computer networks. The course format has been designed to meet the requirements of applicants who already possess an appropriate HND, by providing a two-year top-up programme leading to an Honours degree. The main emphasis is on the installation, operation, security and maintenance of computer networks used in business and industry. Most companies now have their own computer network systems which are vital to their operation. This applies across a wide range of companies, including the energy industry, the health sector and banking and finance. These companies require specialist staff who can manage and develop these networks. This course will provide you with the specialist knowledge and skills needed to confidently undertake these roles. The course components are designed to develop different aspects of your ability to work in this area. In addition, training for the Cisco Certified Network Associate certification is an integral part of the course. Completing this training prepares you for Cisco Network Associate certification – a qualification that is recognised worldwide.
Professionally accredited courses provide industry-wide recognition of the quality of your qualification.
