Westminster is a Cisco Networking Academy and this course allows you to register for CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate) exams. All Cisco-relevant material is covered in core modules throughout the course. The emphasis is on ‘hands-on’ work at every level, enhancing the development of your engineering skills which are vital for today’s market. You can transfer to the
Computer Networks and Communications BSc Honours course at the end of the common first year.


Security is a vital aspect of any networked system, especially as the dependency on network infrastructures has grown over the past few decades. This course builds on more than ten years of experience in education in network design and support, and its aim is to produce network engineers with a strong background in security.

The course focuses on three main aspects – communication, network design and implementation, and security. You will develop the knowledge and technical expertise to be able to take on specific responsibility within a network team or as a team leader for the security aspects of that network, particularly in industries such as banking, where security is crucially important


Year 1 (Credit Level 4)

In the first year you will focus on the fundamental principles of networking, computer hardware and software development, creating a solid foundation for the remainder of the course.

Subjects of study include:

Audio Processing Using an Embedded Microcomputer
Computer Networks and Communications
Digital Systems
Electronics and Circuits
Year 2 (Credit Level 5)

The course continues with the themes of network engineering and software development. Specialist modules look at the threats to a system’s integrity, how they can be countered, and the practical implementation of encryption.

Subjects of study include:

Applied Cryptography
Local and Wide-Area Networks
Network Software Engineering
Operating Systems
Professional Employability Skills
Threats and Counter Measures
Sandwich placement year

You will have the opportunity to take a placement in industry between Year 2 and Year 3. This gives you practical experience in the workplace and a competitive edge in the job market. It contributes to your professional development towards Chartered Engineer status.

Year 3 (Credit Level 6)

The network theme is further advanced and the issues of implementation, configuration and dealing with present day data streams (such as for multimedia applications) are addressed. There are specialist modules on planning and implementing secure systems, and on working on projects in an industrial environment, which will prepare you to analyse requirements, and design and implement a secure network system. You will also complete a major project involving these aspects.
