In this degree students will focus on the security of information systems, learning the techniques and theory that support network infrastructures in small to large businesses. Students will develop the skills to support a network roll-out and infrastructure maintenance, as well as learn about networking topologies, routers and firewalls. The networking courses prepare students to sit industry certification exams in CISCO, CCNA and CCNP. This means that not only will students graduate with a degree that’s professionally accredited by the Australian Computer Society, students could hold a highly regarded industry certification as well. A common first year across IT degrees enables students to switch between specialisations and get credit for completed courses.
