Description

In the network security subject students learn about the theory underlying computer-security. This subject applies this theory to practice by using material based on the Cisco Network Security course. The emphasis is on network security appliances and networking infrastructure such as firewalls, access control, secure network design and Virtual Private Networks.

Students work collaboratively throughout the session. From week 1 students form groups of three and all lab work is a shared experience. All additional activities, such as researching concepts, exploring networking challenges and building the required networks, are achieved by students working cooperatively.

Groups are also encouraged to share their findings with other groups, and while most assessments are individual, this shared knowledge contributes positively to the whole learning experience.
