Entry Criteria

Eligibility for the programme is as follows:

  • GCE Advance Level (Local) - 3 passes in one and the same sitting with a pass in Mathematics or Physics or from Engineering Technology stream. OR GCE Advance Level (Edexcel / Cambridge) - 3 D passes in one and the same sitting with a pass in Mathematics or Physics or from Engineering Technology stream. OR Successful completion of the Foundation Certificate in IT at SLIIT Academy.
  • A pass in the Aptitude Test conducted by SLIIT.
Students may also apply with pending Advance Level Results.
  • Computer systems and network administrators are responsible for the upkeep, configuration and reliable operation of computer networks, which form the backbone of modern information systems.
  • This course has been designed to help you understand computer network design and development technologies so you can pursue career opportunities in this rapidly expanding field.
  • The course integrates current developments in wired and wireless networking, offering a comprehensive view of the industry.
  • You will develop skills in network design and management, and the convergence of computer hardware, embedded systems, IT, technical support, real-time systems, software and telecommunications.
  • Your focus will be on the design and support of distributed computer and telecommunications networks.
  • You will also learn about the internet of things (IoT) – a network of devices connected to the internet on a global scale. The IoT is expanding at a rapid rate, and it is becoming increasingly important for professionals to understand what it is, how it works, and how to harness its power to improve business.
  • This course will enable you to apply your technical knowledge across IoT-related functions in the workplace. This course includes certification-based training with IT leaders.
  • By the time you graduate, you will have the skills to expand the capabilities of networks already in place and to build new ones.
  • This course has been introduced to address a significant market demand for skills associated with the design of embedded Systems, sensors and the networks that underpin them.
  • It encompasses computer technology, in terms of both hardware and software, as well as computer communications and networking incorporating Local Area Networks (LANs), Wide Area Networks (WANs) and sensor networks in the context of the Internet of Things.
  • Apply the theory of computer systems networking within the engineering design method, whilst remaining cognisant of network operational issues
  • Define a problem and apply creative thinking to the formulation of a solution; verify and implement the solution
  • Access information, evaluate and organise information relevant to computer systems networking
  • Document networking information to meet technical and legal requirements; communicate concepts and technical information to lay and professional personnel in written, oral and electronic forms
  • Use appropriate tools to design, analyse and verify computer systems networks and their components
  • Recognise that the computer systems networking industry changes rapidly, and maintain currency via a spirit of inquiry and relevant further study
  • Apply international standards, practices and conventions appropriate to computer systems networking
  • Function effectively within a typical multidisciplinary and multi-cultural engineering design team as a team member, manager or team leader, recognising individual human rights
  • Commit to and behave in accordance with the professional and ethical responsibilities of engineers
  • It offers a carefully designed curriculum to students to learn various CISCO components within the CISCO regional academy located in the department to obtain CISCO Certified Network Associate and other CISCO qualifications.
  • Graduates from this course enjoy excellent employment prospects as system administrators, network operators, help desk consultants, for example.
  • Laboratory sessions are based on industry standard certification preparation.
  • This, combined with the theoretical foundations, will give you a unique understanding of real networks and how they’re used in industry today.
