This course focuses on the infrastructure that powers the movement of data on the Internet. Students get an in-depth understanding of computer network design, implementation, and optimization through a suite of modules that focus on cutting-edge technologies. This includes Software Defined Networks, Public, Private, and Hybrid Cloud Technologies, and Ethical Hacking. The Cyber Security eco-system has evolved and grown at an exponential rate over the last number of years and is a critical aspect for all sectors of our economy.
The program covers skills in the design, configuration, and deployment of networking infrastructures. As well as skills in software configuration of networking devices and deploying such devices to the cloud. This is an extremely hands-on a degree with lots of time spent in computer labs. The aim is to teach students how to use industry-standard tools and techniques and then explain the concepts behind them. Creativity, problem-solving, persistence, and critical thinking are key skills that are developed during the course. Based on discussions with industry experts we have embedded a series of key skills in this program. These include the ability to test and evaluate hardware or software and solve problems with technology, design enterprise networks, secure computer resources, manage digital assets, server management, voice over IP, database management and development, and computer forensics. Our team of lecturers has students as their number one priority. Small class sizes and a hands-on approach mean that help and guidance are available when needed. We also focus on developing students’ soft skills including teamwork, communication, and creativity which are increasingly important to employers.
