Course Information and Fees
INFORMATION & COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY: COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS
Organisations employ IT specialists in an effort to make the most effective use of information technology and to achieve business objectives. IT specialists are not just relegated to IT technology companies; they perform computer support in many businesses across many industries irrespective of the industry in which they work. IT specialists provide services related to software, hardware, databases, networks and information systems. They help facilitate the use of their company’s technologies including intranet, email, FTP and internet access.
There is an ongoing need for a wide range of highly skilled information technology personnel in South Africa. As the field is subject to rapid technological change, it requires professionals who are well trained, who keep up to date with the latest developments and who can engage future trends and developments. Communications Networks students are prepared for careers in network development and administration and systems administration.
