This course combines learning opportunities designed to enhance the depth and breadth of your knowledge in core themes including routing, switching, wireless and network security.
By studying this course you will develop the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required for employment in the network industry. The course has been designed with a complementary set of modules to enable you to complete external CISCO and CCNP examinations in addition to achieving the MSc qualification. You will graduate with the educational requirements for BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, Chartered IT Professional Registration and for Chartered Engineer status.
The increasing demand for specialists in network security and network programming means that graduates have excellent employment prospects in Computer Network Technology, including roles such as Network designer, Network manager, and Network engineer, as well as many other roles across public and private organisations. Alternatively, you will be very well equipped for further research in an academic or research and development environment, and the mix of research, numerical and problem-solving skills are desirable to careers outside of this subject.
Through your coursework, you will have developed and applied computational, communication, research and team-working skills. Learning independently, managing yourself and others on project tasks, and evaluating and reflecting upon practitioner experience are all essential skills of the computing professional which your modules help to develop, providing you with opportunities to practise and demonstrate proficiency for your future career.
