Computer networks have revolutionised every aspect of our lives, be it communication, education, entertainment, health or social networking. Computer networks are the basis on which tools and technologies such as the Internet and the Web, mobile computing and communication, and cloud applications have been built. Nowadays, computer networks are ubiquitous and play a pivotal role in all areas of both public and private sectors. It is therefore not surprising to see that computer networks specialists are highly sought after by the industry.
This course will equip you with the theoretical knowledge and intensive practical skills required to design, implement and operate computer networks at small and large companies, and support their ever-changing needs. This industry-approved programme will also enable you to engineer new networking technologies, thus shaping the future of the industry. You will study core modules such as Computer Networks and Internetworking, Network Design and Performance Evaluation, Operating Systems Concepts, Network Security, Network Management, Pen Testing and Digital Forensics, Virtualisation and Cloud Computing, Enterprise Network Troubleshooting, and Cybersecurity and Cyber laws. You will learn how to model, monitor and analyse networks, and simulate performance and availability for optimum usage. More generally, the degree looks at network design and construction, programming and operating systems, network troubleshooting and securing networks in a business environment. In addition to the expertise you build up in the subject, the course will improve your mathematical, problem solving, teamwork, communication, time management and critical thinking skills.
Because we consider practical work to be an important part of every module, our laboratories are equipped with the latest industry-standard software, including OPNET, Wireshark, MATLAB, Simulink, OpNet Modeller 17.0, OMNeT++, Openstack, SNORT, IPSec, Syslog and Cisco technology such as Packet Tracer. While studying for this qualification you will also work Cisco hardware, considered the gold standard in the industry.
