The complexity of networking and the severity of security challenges the world faces today require a background comprised of multiple courses from fundamentals to integrated topics. This program gives students an extensive grounding in traditional network and security protocols, as well as preparation for technologies such as wired and wireless networking, VOIP, virtualization and others only now emerging. London Metropolitan University is a certified Cisco Academy, and one of the very few places in the UK which has been certified by Cisco Systems to provide both CCNA and CCNP training. This will put our graduates ahead by having some of the most sought-after professional qualifications in the industry.

This course will not only help you gain a better grasp of cyber security, but it will also broaden your knowledge of computers and computer networking. You'll learn about networks and operating systems, programming, and computer security before moving on to more specialized cyber security topics like ethical hacking, digital crime investigation, and network and cloud security.

Hands-on practice in our cutting-edge computer and cyber security laboratories will supplement theoretical study. London Metropolitan University is the proud home of the UK's first Cisco Networking Academy, which opened its doors more than 15 years ago, as well as our Cyber Security Research Centre of Excellence. This course covers the whole set of CCNA modules, allowing you to graduate with extra Cisco CCNA 1, 2, 3, 4, and Network Security certifications in addition to your degree.
Throughout the course, you will be supported by highly qualified teaching staff who have strong industry and possible employment connections.
