This programme has been designed through our links with leading engineering and technology companies and provides the specialist knowledge and expertise required for a professional career in computer and network technology. Project-based learning in all years, including live industry-led projects, will help you develop the transferable skills and multi-disciplinary awareness so highly prized by industry. Year 1 will establish the fundamentals of computer and network technology, programming and basic electronics, and you will work on your practical and project skills in developing and managing standalone and networked computer systems. Year 2 will develop your practical and analytical skills through study of applications and systems programming, central processing units, memory and interfacing sub-systems and communications standards and protocols. You will take on a specialist role in a group project and start detailed planning of your career. You will gain knowledge and skills required for taking the CISCO CCNA Routing and Switching exam. In the final year, you will focus on further specialist study and projects in the final year, all informed by the School of Engineerings active research and industrial partnerships, which will give you experience of the latest development in computer and network technology and prepare you to face real world challenges. Features and benefits of the course: - All units have been designed to use up to date examples from the world of engineering. Every year, the School of Engineering invites industrial and academic colleagues to set new live projects that challenge our students to devise innovative solutions to current problems. You will get feedback and advice directly from industrialists and have the chance to find out exactly what it takes to impress a potential future employer. - You will have the opportunity to work with other students in the Student Society on extra-curricular projects to apply and showcase your engineering and design skills in, for example, the Formula Student racing car competition or the Engineering For People Design Challenge. - You will gain the knowledge and skills required for taking the CISCO CCNA Routing and Switching exam. - You can apply to become a STEM Ambassador - great for developing your communication skills. Full training will be provided for you to work on projects in which you can share your enthusiasm for engineering, design and technology in schools and at public events. - Full training will be provided for you to use our state-of-the-art workshops, laboratories and specialist engineering software. - In your final year, you will present your work at the School's degree show and in an online yearbook - both of which will be viewed by industry representatives.
