About Computer Networks at Bournemouth University

Do you have a passion for technology, problem solving and excellent analytical skills? Why not apply these skills to help connect the world with the latest networking technologies?

Network engineers develop the infrastructure that enables devices and systems to communicate. Computer networks have become a critical and integral part of all business sectors from banking and finance, to retail and professional services, and to support the increasing computing technology that is becoming embedded in our homes.

On this Chartered Institute for IT (BCS) ccredited course, you’ll learn how to design, configure and optimise distributed and large-scale networks to create seamless systems which are vital for organisational efficiency and productivity.

You will learn both wired and wireless communication technologies and protocols ranging from traditional ethernet to ad-hoc and cellular, such as 4G and 5G networks. In addition to core computing skills, you will learn the fundamentals of networks including flexibility, scalability, quality of service and the security implications of corporate infrastructures.

Using state of the art network devices in our Cisco laboratory, you’ll put theory into practice by designing and configuring your own networks as well as exploring the latest developments in communication technologies, such as the cloud, the Internet of Things and next-generation networks.

Career opportunities can include roles such as network designer/engineer, network architect, IT manager or information systems manager.

This is one of eight undergraduate computing courses we offer at BU. As we understand that it can be difficult to know what area you’d like to specialise in, all of these courses share a common first year, giving you the time to really explore the subject before deciding on a specialism. You only need to apply for one of the courses and you will have the opportunity to change your final degree title during your study with us.
