This course examines the networking and computer technology which provides us with the data links for social network, business and enterprise, and information that we have become reliant upon in our everyday lives. You will already have experience of local area networks, and this course extends that knowledge to networks which encompass a country, or indeed between countries. You will have knowledge and experience of real life networking equipment and the threats and countermeasures used to secure networks.
You will study both wired and wireless networks and at the same time develop an appreciation of ubiquitous computing. This course provides you with an opportunity to develop skills in problem solving, analysis and design, as well as management within a technologically engaging subject. We aim to produce skilled graduates who are able to make a positive contribution within the global, networked, community.
