MAJ03445 Networking and Cybersecurity

This major provides the necessary knowledge and skills in network design and application development, and is concerned with technology services.

Students learn the hows and whys of internet design – its architecture, protocols and components – as well as the enabling software tools and programming methods to achieve a well-designed secure network.

Businesses and users now require services on demand, network information security, user/service mobility and quality of service. This major addresses these issues along with network and protocol design principles through two major thrusts: designing future networks, and developing practical applications and services.

Students intending to take this major should complete 41039 Programming 1 rather than 48023 Programming Fundamentals.
