CAO Course Code
Why take this course?
Networks are all around us, from the traditional concept of PCs wired to a LAN, to wireless devices, to cloud computing and internet of things (IoT). The one common thing is all these devices require secure and reliable networks in order to function. The management of networks is a core function for many organisations. The Computer Engineering with Network Infrastructure stream incorporates a number of modules which will prepare you to obtain industry accredited certification in addition to the institute award. These include the Cisco CCNA Routing and Switching, Wireless, Security and the CCNP Switch certifications.
What do I do in the first year?
• Building and testing electronic circuits based on the
• Arduino microcontroller
• Configuring small networks based on Cisco CCENT
• How a computer works inside the box, based on
• CompTIA A+
• Introduction to Java programming
• Complete an electronic project
• Computer applications (Microsoft Office User System)
What opportunities might it lead to?
As a graduate, you can expect to find employment as a network designer, network system administrator, software roles, technical sales in a range of industries. Potential employers include Ericsson, Valeo, Cisco, Avaya, SAP, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, Intel, VMWare, and a range of enterprises from small start-ups to areas such smart manufacturing, transport, healthcare and finance where networks have become key to their operation.
“The year 2020 will be a keystone in the evolution toward the networks of the future, with the first commercial deployments of large-scale 5G infrastructures, the increasing interest in network intelligence and machine learning techniques applied to network management and orchestration”
