Recent years have witnessed the emergence of a technical skills gap in the IT industry, caused by the marked lack of appropriate higher level qualifications. The BSc (Hons) and Foundation Degree programmes in Network Engineering, Security and Systems Administration aim to redress the balance. They provide students with a trusted route through to their chosen career and employers with the technical experts needed to positively impact their business. A winning combination of technical and transferable skills equips graduates to take up positions as technicians, senior administrators or managers within the IT and related industries.
