Course summary

Computer networks are an integral part of business and as such our Computer Networks course will equip you with the skills you need to design, configure, manage and administer distributed network systems to a professional standard. As part of the course, you will look at computer and networking infrastructures and characteristics like flexibility, scalability, performance, resilience, quality of service and security, and design choices and implications of corporate infrastructure.

You will be well prepared for the world of work, gaining experience of project management, team working, presentation skills and working to deadlines in your first two years. You can opt to spend your third year on a work placement, meaning you will graduate with a year's work experience to add to your CV.

This course is also accredited by the British Computing Society (BCS), recognised by employers nationally and overseas. To be awarded Chartered IT Professional status from BCS you will need to complete a year of further learning beyond graduation, details of which can be found on the BCS website.

Computing has may specialist areas and it can be difficult to know what area you’d like to specialise in at this stage. All courses within the Department of Computing & Informatics share a common first year, so this gives you the time to really explore the subject before you decide which career path interests you most.

Course details

On this course you will be taught by staff with relevant expertise and knowledge appropriate to the content of the unit. This could include senior academic staff, qualified professional practitioners and research students, many of whom are actively engaged in research and/or professional practice which is integrated into the teaching of this course.

Careers

Data communication and computer networks are particularly important to modern organisations and this degree will give you the technical knowledge you need to get ahead in this particular field.

The experience you gain from your work placement, coupled with the skills you’ll gain on your course, could make you stand out to potential employers. Our graduates are highly sought after, with 87% in a professional/managerial position six months after graduating.
