This programme builds the confidence and knowledge needed to take on the kind of large scale, full day scenarios encountered in the CCIE lab exam. For full programme details visit the MSc Advanced Internetworking Engineering microsite. The MSc tackles the design and configuration of a number of technologies. Increasingly complex assignments are introduced as new technologies are added during the duration of the course. Lectures, labs and tutorials are used to give you a secure practice environment in preparation for the CCIE lab. The postgraduate diploma (PgD) takes nine months to complete full-time.
