M.Sc. in Computer Networks & Communications (CNC)


The M.Sc. in Computer Networks & Communications degree provides students with a broad foundation in information technology (IT), and an in-depth understanding of computer data communication and modern networking. The five core courses include a comprehensive, introductory networking course that covers digital communications, local area, wide area, wireless, and other network technologies. The core also includes courses in databases, math for IT, strategic IT, software development, and systems analysis and design. The Computer Networks concentration courses provide students with a comprehensive understanding of network design and implementation, network performance analysis and management, network security, and the latest networking technology. The program is designed to empower students with extensive knowledge and hands-on experience to analyze, design, procure, manage, and implement cutting-edge computer networking solutions and technologies.

Students who complete the master’s degree in CNC will be able to demonstrate:

  • Advanced knowledge of computer language theory, software design, as well as data bases, networks, or security.
  • Proficiency in algorithms, operating systems, computer language usage, software development, and the management of data, networks, or security.
  • Competence sufficient to investigate continually emerging new software technologies, applications, and approaches.
  • Advanced knowledge of data communication protocols and networks; of issues involved in multi-access media, including wired and wireless; performance analysis of networks; and management of large networks.
  • Proficiency in data communication protocols and networks, including error control and flow control, distributed synchronization, error detection and correction, and forwarding and techniques to implement it.
  • Competence sufficient to design, specify, and develop data transfer protocols for specific purposes; design, specify, plan, and define networks of any size; and analyze, evaluate, and select network technologies.
