  • on campus courses available

Swinburne University of Technology

Course description

The Master of Engineering Science (Network Systems and Telecommunications) comprises advanced level information and communications technology (ICT) studies with a major focus on telecommunication systems and the management of networks. The Master of Engineering Science (Network Systems and Telecommunications) focuses on developing mastery of theoretical knowledge and practical skills related to network design, management and service provision of private and public network systems, wireless and broadband technologies, and the security and protection of networked and computer systems.

There is a particular focus on practical aspects of network design and deployment of develop a mastery of a range of networking technologies. The course is also strongly focused in aspects of network and computer security using both theoretical studies and practical examples. Aspects of the course cover the content of various professional certifications. In addition to the specialist networking and security skills, this course is also focused on the development of research skills needed to assess the effectiveness of a networking technology or solution. The acquired skills and knowledge are consolidated in a major project in the final year. This course provides graduates with knowledge and skills allowing them to undertake professional work at an advanced level in field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and as a pathway for research and further learning.

To qualify for the award of Master of Engineering Science (Network Systems and Telecommunications), students must complete 16 units of study (200 credit points) as follows:

12 Network Systems core units (150 credit points)

4 Networks Systems elective units (50 credit points)

Aims and objectives

Upon completion of their course, students will be capable graduate ICT professionals, and able to:

1. Demonstrate a broad and coherent understanding of the concepts within the field of Information and Communication Technology systems, and to apply this as an effective member of diverse teams in an ICT professional context.

2. Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of the underlying principles and concepts within the telecommunications and networking methodologies, design, and implementation that facilitates independent lifelong learning in their professional practice.

3. Evaluate new and emerging telecommunications and networking technologies and practices, and their integration with existing networking systems.

4. Critically analyse new networking and/or security scenarios, evaluate the existing knowledge base, and propose and critique viable solutions.

5. Demonstrate an in-depth understanding of large scale Public Telecommunication infrastructure and the impact of the behaviour of networked applications on this infrastructure.

6. Formulate a research question in the context of networking/security, and to use accepted research methodologies to explore innovative approaches.

7. Plan and execute a substantial research-based project and/or capstone experience.
