Learning outcomes

The aim of this programme is to teach the principles, theory and practice of system management, including network and system design, analysis, efficiency and security. The programme places emphasis on practical skills based on Unix, Windows and Macintosh platforms but teaches general principles along with their technical and ethical foundations. Courses include general system administration, core networking with extensive lab work, routing, security analysis and implementation, and culminates in a project/dissertation which amounts about 25% of the course. Students are expected to read and understand research papers and make presentations to the class.
