This course is intended for computing science, information technology or engineering graduates with or without networking experience who wish to learn or extend their knowledge of networking and networking technologies. As students come from a variety of backgrounds, there is a degree of subject choice in the program to meet individual needs.
The internetworking program provides practical, hands-on learning experience using various resources, including the support provided by Cisco Systems for broad computer network and relevant applications, including routing, switching, security, wireless, mobile computing, web systems, cloud computing and operating systems. Advanced electives in internetworking, in addition to CCNA and CCNP preparation subjects, are available. The program covers all aspects of the organisational use of networks: design, implementation, security management, end systems and applications.
The program aims to:
meet the needs of industry for computer network professionals
target a number of industry-based certifications: CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) and CCNA Security
retrain IT professionals wishing to move into computer networking and its relevant fields
provide a practical grounding in networking, network design, and administration and management
provide an introduction to the development of web and mobile applications, and
meet students' needs by allowing specialisation through project work and subject choice.
