University of Westminster

Course Introduction

The course aims to prepare a student with specialist knowledge and skillset in key areas such as network design, storage area networks, optical networking, network simulation, network redundancy and reliability. Students will be able to review commonly used network simulators, commercial and academic, their common and specific purposes and architectures. The course will enable the student to apply a holistic understanding of networks and their applications in solving real world problems. It will also enable them to develop the ability to critically evaluate and integrate devices and components used for high speed fibre optical communication systems, and develop the ability to model the behaviour of modern day network systems to design and critically evaluate such systems at all levels of the OSI model.

Course Additional Entry

Qualifications equivalent to a good Honours degree (a minimum 2.1) from a British university in computer engineering, computer science with a knowledge of computer hardware, or in electronic engineering with some programming experience. Relevant work experience will be taken into account.
