Computer systems and networks are essential for all modern industries. As a result, a degree in this area will open the door to career opportunities in a world of developing technologies. You'll focus on current relevant network technologies, including Ethernet, TCP/IP, as well as web based services, security issues and wireless/mobile technologies. Taking a valuable one year work placement will allow you to experience the industry first-hand, returning to university to complete your degree or honours. The course involves 4 years of full-time study, 4 ½ years when the Work Based Learning option is taken. If you already have an HND in Computer Support, or its equivalent, this course will allow you to take the next step into a degree or honours in networked computing environments. The course covers the CCNA syllabus of industry leader Cisco (the School of Computing is a Cisco Regional Academy) and is also accredited by the British Computer Society. Your studies will equip you with the tools you need to play a role in the future direction of the technologies that support the Internet and key communication systems. Our teaching staff are drawn from industry practitioners, giving you access to real-world knowledge and expertise. You'll be trained in network design and administration, the deployment of internet technology, security, software design and development. As well as the theory behind computer systems and networks, you'll develop practical skills through your course and optional work placement that will give you that vital edge when it comes to impressing potential employers. Modules studied in the programme will help you towards gaining Cisco CCNA accreditation, an industry-recognised qualification. Professionally accredited by: View Full Screen
