Course summary

This course is designed to equip you to deal with the ever-changing needs of the business world and ever-developing threats to security - combining both theory and intensive practical experience with a strong emphasis on professional skills. The course is suitable for both recent graduates and IT professionals who wish to further their knowledge. Spend a minimum of 78 hours gaining practical experience in our industry-standard networking labs. We encourage students to explore new concepts and developments and were delighted when three of our students were crowned winners at the Young Professional Engineering Challenge. This course gives you an in-depth understanding of computer network design, implementation and optimisation. You will focus on network design and construction, programming and operating systems, and network troubleshooting in a business environment. You will also explore cloud-based networks, modern data centres, virtualisation and distributed storage.

As well as exams, tests and your research project, you will be assessed through practical assignments, including laboratory work, and coursework including essays, reports, presentations and class discussions. Some assessed work will be group work. This course will leave you perfectly placed for a role as a training specialist, university lecturer, systems dispenser or business analysis manager. Many of our graduates have gone straight into employment in the networking and communications industry and are working in programming, telecommunications engineering or network management. Or why not consider starting your own your business? Our graduates have gone onto achieve many successes since leaving Middlesex and a number have even started working for large companies.
