NQF Level 7 | Technology | Full Time After Hours | Degree: Bachelor of Science in Information Technology | Saqa Id: 120690
The specialised nature of this degree prepares you for work in many areas in the Information Technology industry that are related to Computer Networking, Network Analysis, Cybersecurity and
IP Network Engineering.

Security and Network engineering is a branch of Information Technology that is inclined towards the application of principles used in the field of engineering and computing, for the design and implementation of computer networks which focuses on high-level design and planning.

This qualification is specially designed for students interested in the selection and configuration of appropriate data communication components to meet users and corporate needs. It will also help students in gaining the expertise required for the construction of a reliable and high-performing network integrating LAN, WAN, Internet, and intranet components which entail network modelling and analysis.

Furthermore, students will be equipped with the knowledge required to secure a network by adopting relevant policies and practices to prevent and monitor unauthorised access, misuse, modification, or denial of computer network and network-accessible resources.
 
Substantial knowledge required to defend computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks will also be gained.

You will also develop essential skills for the world of work, such as analytical and abstract thinking, effective decision-making, self-discipline, being innovative, adapting to change, working in teams and communicating effectively.
