Li Li graduated from the MEng Internetworking program and states: "The program gave me the high-level skills and the confidence to achieve my career goals."
If so, the Master of Engineering degree in Internetworking may be for you.
For entry to this Master's degree program in Internetworking (Computer Networks), prospective students must hold an undergraduate degree. Preferred degrees are Engineering (any discipline) and Applied Sciences. Graduates of this program will have a solid theoretical foundation as well as a solid technology experience, and will be positioned for success in many different facets of the networking industry. This is a course-based Master's degree that covers not only what the current technology is, but also why the technology is in its present form. It provides the theoretical background to analyze the shortcomings and strengths of the technology, its continuing evolution, and the challenges that lie ahead for the industry.
The program consists of 10 courses and an oral presentation on a technical subject. Deviation from the posted schedule requires a program of study approved by the program director. Courses will be offered in a compressed 6 week format requiring a minimum of 160 hours of work per course. Certain courses will require more time.
In addition, students are advised to access Cisco CCNA on-line training as well as undertake other self-training opportunities. These can lead the students to industrial certification if they so choose.
This Master's degree is offered by the Faculty of Engineering, Dalhousie University, under the auspices of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in Halifax the provincial capital of Nova Scotia, Canada. The director works with his team consisting of administrative staff, academics, technologists, and industrial partners to ensure the highest academic standard, and to enable the students to undertake a unique training opportunity using the program facilities.
The total cost of the Master's degree is reviewed annually and the current proposal may be seen under the fees page.
Before classes commence, students must register for all Master's degree courses to be taken in any term. Registration is checked 10 working days prior to each course and any student who is not registered at that time will not be permitted to attend classes.
