Course content

This programme aims to provide in-depth knowledge and skills in the specialist area of networking and security.

It has been developed in response to the need for personnel equipped with the skills needed to design, implement and troubleshoot an enterprise computer network infrastructure.

The course is designed primarily for science and technology graduates who have some prior knowledge of computing and/or networking and who wish to specialise in computer networking.

You will learn how to protect IT infrastructure from threats and attacks by conducting real-time pen testing and digital forensics.

We have the best networking and cybersecurity lab in Wales.
