University of Westminster, London has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
Security is a vital aspect of any networked system, especially as the dependency on network infrastructures has grown over the past few decades. This course builds on more than ten years of experience in education in network designand support, and its aim is to produce network engineers with a strong background in security. Westminster is a Cisco Networking Academy, and the course incorporates the Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Security curriculum, giving you the opportunity to complete the CCNA Security qualification while studying for your degree. You will learn the fundamental principles of computing and network engineering, and develop the connection between these and a broad range of network systems (with special emphasis placed on the optimisation of converged networks). You will also be encouraged to use initiative and confidence in approaching engineering problems, investigating solutions using a blend of analytical and practical skills.
