Programme Overview

The combination of computers and telecommunications networks has changed our world. From the mobile phone in our pocket to the supercomputers used to model the earth’s climate, computers are an integral part of our work and social life today. Coupled with a massive increase in our communications infrastructure, this has resulted in a society where people are used to interacting with information and other people from all round the globe.

This has opened up exciting opportunities for people who know how to create and manage these networks and the computers that use them and a degree in networking computing can help you utilise this potential. To be an effective practitioner in this area requires the ability to stay up to date with rapidly changing technologies and the competence to apply these technologies effectively.

On completion of the course you will have gained a knowledge and understanding of the foundations, techniques, limitations, developments, trends and applications of network computing and will have experience and skills in designing, creating, developing and maintaining networks and the computers and software that runs on top of them.

Delivery Model
Combination of lectures, tutorials and workshops in a classroom environment at Informatics Academy campus. Lessons are typically in blocks of 3-hour sessions.
