Rapid advances in Internet technologies and applications, and the subsequent proliferation of economic activity on the Internet have ushered in the digital age where virtually every organization wants to leverage this massive and ubiquitous public technology infrastructure to create new value for its stakeholders. With the advancement of computer technology coupled with pervasive use of computers, and in part to support the Singapore’s Smart Nation vision, there is a need for personnel trained in computer networking.
In the survey on Infocomm Media Manpower conducted by the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) in 2018, a Network and Infrastructure professional is one of the most in-demand role, accounting for 17% of the total demand for Infocomm professionals. Enterprises have projected that the demand for Networks & Infrastructure-related roles will grow by 2,300 in the period of 2018 – 2020.
The Diploma (Conversion) in Computer Networking offered by the School of EEE seeks to address this industrial demand. The course intends to train and equip participants with the practical knowledge and skills in administrating the Enterprise IT Network and Systems.
The course aims to teach participants to:
- Understand the concepts in data communication and the role of computer network equipment like routers and switches.
- Design, configure and troubleshoot computer networks.
- Setup, configure, operate and maintain servers on a computer network.
