Course summary

The power and complexity of computer systems, peripheral equipment and support is evolving rapidly to meet the demands of today’s users and most computer systems use networks, ranging from household phone and cable connections to transatlantic optical fibre cables and geostationary satellite links. This course will give you the ability to specify requirements, design systems and commission and test computer and network technologies – sought-after skills in today’s technology-driven job market. In the first year of your BSc Honours degree course in Computer and Network Technology you will develop an understanding of relevant opportunities, how to exploit them and the associated responsibilities. You will gain hands-on experience of programming using Java, and of software development through extensive laboratory work. You will also learn about fundamental technical concepts - including computer architecture using packages especially for games and PDA tools to investigate digital subsystems; sound and image conversion to digital form; the functionality of RAM and Flash memory, magnetic and optical media; and data transmission networks. In your second year you will broaden your knowledge of the technologies, standards and techniques relevant to designing and implementing multimedia communication infrastructures. In your final year you will cover a variety of modern networking environments, you will become familiar with the practical issues and capable of working within a professional environment. For example, you will be able to understand different systems and rapidly assimilate the information needed to satisfy particular requirements, both from a purchaser's and a developer's viewpoint. You will also extend your knowledge and skills in programming and multimedia techniques to include animation and virtual reality, with time spent on laboratory-based exercises in 3D graphics.
