Aug, 2019

A Network engineer must be a confident communicator and possess excellent attention to detail, analytical and problem-solving skills. That is what we train you to become.

Network engineers are responsible for implementing, maintaining, supporting, developing and, in some cases, designing communication networks within an organisation or between organisations.

Training in cyber security is particularly critical for network security and information technology programs. Courses train students to be able to prevent access from, recognize and track down hackers.

Through these different programs, students learn how to identify security issues and protect information as well as track down those who steal that data. Because cyber security is necessary for security and so many other fields, there are several types of programs available that vary in scope and focus.

Their goal is to ensure the integrity of high availability network infrastructure to provide maximum performance for their users.
