Course details

Summary

The Institute of IT Professionals NZ (IITP) recognises our Bachelor of Computer and Information Sciences as meeting the Seoul Accord.

You benefit from our outstanding facilities and industry connections, including our ICT and Engineering Careers Fair where you can meet representatives from New Zealand’s biggest and most exciting companies, from Datacom and Deloitte to Slingshot and Fisher & Paykel Healthcare. Pair this with the industry research project in your final year, and you have the perfect foundation to launch your career in computer and information sciences.

In the Networks and Security major you study the basics and infrastructure of networking, and learn to configure, implement and analyse network devices. This includes information network administration and network security to an advanced level.

Information is often an organisation’s most precious asset – but it’s also one of its most vulnerable assets. New information security threats and attacks are constantly developing and the only solution is to develop increasingly secure networks. That’s why networks and security are areas that are universally important. This major focuses on practical projects where you apply your knowledge to implement networks and secure systems.
