MSc Advanced Computer Networks

Course Description

This course will equip you for a successful career as a network manager with the skills to be able to develop, maintain and manage computer networks – or to pursue further research leading to a PhD. It will develop your understanding of the relevant, modern theories associated with practical expertise in networking technologies and applications.

The MSc Advanced Computer Networks offers a structured environment in which to develop your critical understanding of networking technologies and applications in a wide range of contexts, providing you with the ideal preparation for employment.
