  • Course description
    Course structure
    The course is divided into three stages:

    Stage 1: three core modules:

    -Advanced Communications Systems
    -Broadband Networks
    -Routing and Switching Devices

    Stage 2: two core modules and four optional modules (subject to change)

    -Compulsory modules:
    -Research Methods and Project Preparation
    -Advanced Routing and Switching
    -Optional modules:
    -Network Security
    -Embedded Internet Systems
    -Mobile and Digital Broadcasting
    -Topics in Computer Network Analysis and Simulation

    Stage 3: Computer Networking / Communications Dissertation

    Teaching and learning
    Each taught module is organised around the weekly sessions of direct contact. This is expected to be supplemented by directed reading, investigation, and private study. The direct contact includes formal lectures, seminars, demonstrations, case studies, presentations, and supervised tutorials.

    Assessment
    Most taught modules incorporate substantial ongoing in-course assessment with a formal end-of-module examination. The in-course assessments are intended to be formative and will assess the students attainment in the module objectives that are not readily examinable by a formal unseen examination paper.

    Career opportunities
    Businesses and organisations continue to adopt increasingly complex and sophisticated technologies in their network and broadband infrastructures. This rapid change creates new jobs with responsibilities that reflect the changes in technology requiring an increasing level of skills and education. According to the Bureau of Labour Statistics (April 2006), the demand for Network Specialists/Communications Analysts will grow by 55% between now and 2014. Careers range from the traditional telecommunication professionals to Network design engineer, network developer and in marketing and technical support.
