This degree programme will equip graduates who are capable of meeting the increasing demands for combining Computer Networks, Security, and Programming expertise raised by the growing adoption of the Next-Generation Network (NGN) services, e.g., VoIP, and Next Generation Network Model, i.e., SDN and NFV, where network devices have turned to be a programmable virtual entity on the cloud.
Beside core computer science and cyber security modules, this course includes key networking modules prepared carefully according to the new Cisco certification path, in consultation with our Cisco partner. These new modules focus on industry level requirements and are certification oriented and will prepare graduates to meet the new skill demands to maximise employability.
The structure of the course and programme modules makes it possible for graduates to also take traditional and emerging Computer Science, Software Engineering, or Cyber Security roles.
- You will join Cisco Networking Academy.
- Covering the syllabus of three Cisco certificates: The new Cisco Certified Network Associate, Cisco CyberOps Associate, and Cisco DevNet Associate and one additional Cisco Networking Academy course: Network Security
- Specialist networking lab facilities, built according to Cisco latest recommendations.
- Free Cisco assessment for related modules to gain a Course Completion Certificate/Digital Badge from Cisco Networking Academy verifying the acquired skills and preparing the students to optionally obtain the commercial certifications at a 3rd party exam centre.

Teaching and assessments
The course is part of DMU’s Cyber Security Centre, which influences the government and corporations in their approach to cyber security. This shapes the curriculum so that you learn what is important. It also grants you privileged access to career opportunities. In the first year, you will normally attend around 13–15 hours of timetabled taught sessions each week, split across a variety of lectures, small group activities and practical laboratory work.
Assessment is made up of roughly 25 per cent end-of-year examination and 75 per cent coursework in each year. The coursework takes a variety of forms, with frequent laboratory-based phase tests providing early feedback on progress. In the second year, more substantial assignments are set, including a research study. In the final year, assessment is typically by coursework with some specialist optional modules assessed by exams.
