Course content

If you're already a successful networking professional who wants to advance your career to the next level, this unique one-year master's programme is designed for you. The only programme of its kind in the world, GCU's MSc Advanced Internetwork Engineering will prepare you for the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) exam.

The programme offers a structured, supported path so you can develop expert-level network engineering skills and achieve CCIE certification. With this elite credential, you'll be a competitive candidate for senior-level and leadership roles in network engineering.

We partnered with Internetwork Expert Inc. (INE), the leaders in CCIE preparation, to develop this programme. Students learn with INE's CCIE Routing and Switching Workbook and remote rack management systems, the global gold-standard in CCIE prep materials.
