Course content

This applied course will give students an in-depth understanding of network management, providing them with a systematic understanding of the concepts and standards for network management, network management protocols and network management tools. The course looks at virtualisation and cloud computing, exploring and understanding modern data centres, virtualisation, distributed storage, MapReduce, NoSQL, platform services, web services and caching. Students will study online security risks, the steps needed to ensure that data is transmitted and stored securely and measures that can be taken not only to prevent breaches but to minimise damage if they do occur.

Information for international students

We understand that moving to another country can be a very daunting prospect for many students, especially if it is their first time away from their family, which is why we make it our priority to ensure that international students feel welcome, settled and part of the community.

The University has over 3,600 students from more than 100 nationalities, and we encourage students to embrace the cultures of others as well as sharing their own. Events such as ‘World Food Day’ and our highly anticipated ‘International Day’ enable our students to celebrate and promote the culture and traditions of their home countries.

Dubai is one of the most culturally diverse places in the world, and there are so many things to do and see! In this section, students can find useful contact numbers and websites, information about the UAE, things to do in Dubai and more…
