HND Computing: Networking<br />- GG5K 16

The rapid growth of the internet and e-business in the modern world has resulted in a global shortage of staff with the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to enable them to work in the networking and internet-related sector.

An SQA HND in Computer Networking and Internet Technology covers all the fundamental aspects of Computer Networking and Internet Technology, including routing and switching technology, local area networks infrastructure and maintenance.

The SQA HND in Computer Networking and Internet Technology consists of a total of 30 Unit credits. Each Unit credit is designed to take about 40 hours teaching and learning (though it may take more or less time than this).

An SQA HND in Computer Networking and Internet Technology can gain you entry in to an English speaking university.

SQA's prestigious qualifications are recognised worldwide.
