With cybercrimes such as hacking and Internet hoaxes becoming more rampant nowadays, there is a growing need to secure our computer networks. If you look forward to the challenge of making cyberspace a safer place for the universe, then enrol in the Diploma in Network Systems & Security (NSS) to get yourself armed for the battle.
Thanks to our strong partnerships with Cisco Systems (USA), NSS uses the latest technology to give you top-notch infocomm training in areas such as design, implementation, security and maintenance of network infrastructure. You will also get the chance to install and manage virtual servers in data centres that support cloud computing in the NP-IBM Cloud Computing Centre of Excellence. What’s more, you will be well prepared to obtain world-recognised certifications such as CCNA, CCNP, CCNA Security, IPv6 Forum Certified Network Engineer and EC Council Certifications.
This course will teach you the technology on the workings of a secured IT network. You will learn all about implementing wired and wireless network solutions and securing networking devices. To begin with, you will acquire a strong foundation in network fundamentals including basic routing and switching, servers, IT service management and basic computer programming in your first year.
In your second year, you will learn about cloud computing, cloud storage and virtual PCs. You will also learn about the various types of network and server systems including their security aspects. To prepare you for internship, you will be taught how to manage an IT project.
In your final year, you will get to hone your skills in the real world through a six-month internship with national research organisations such as Centre for Strategic Infocomm Technologies (CSIT), Home Team, A*STAR, DSO National Laboratories and InterPol or industry heavyweights such as IBM, Singtel, MyRepublic, Robert Bosch, Global Cloud Xchange, Westcon Group and SuperInternet.
Our students stand a good chance to receive attractive scholarships from well known organisations such as IDA, DSO, CSIT and SingTel.
