As part of this course you will also undertake considerable practical work experience which is a unique opportunity designed to expand your knowledge and network base, while simultaneously strengthening your ability to meet the intricate demands of the information and telecommunications industries.

This course has been specifically designed to help you graduate with advanced knowledge and skills to confidently and competently assume a senior position within your specialisation – regardless of whether you have chosen a network or software engineering pathway.
