Get ready to enter an exciting, fast-changing world where your skills will be in high demand. Use our on-campus and virtual lab environments to learn how to set up complex networks. Take advantage of our relationship with Cisco Systems and gain the skills necessary for certification. This course has been validated to include an optional Sandwich Placement year in industry.
Learn to design, configure, install, manage and support networks in organisations of all sizes, from the relatively small to the multinational.
We’ll begin by studying computer architecture, design principles and programming before exploring the design and implementation of small-scale and enterprise-wide computer networks, and learning about converged voice/data networks.
There’s plenty of opportunity for practical work, including modelling networks and using advanced simulation tools to analyse performance. We’ll also demonstrate the importance of security in network design and critically discuss the relevant ethical and legal issues.
Our stand-alone network lets you safely experiment with building complex networks. You’ll learn to install and configure hardware, operating systems and software. We have Apple Mac Pro computers with dual boot (Windows/Mac OS X), featuring a wide range of CAD, database design and web software. Our virtual network lab means you can access our networking devices from anywhere at any time.
When you graduate, you can apply for certification at Associate (CCNA) and Professional levels (CCNP) with Cisco Systems, the leading manufacturer of networking equipment.
