International Course Info
This professional qualification in Data Infrastructure Engineering is a three year degree which will give you the skills you need to build data systems, architecture and platforms to support big data solutions.
Big data is a fast evolving field in business and commerce and there is a growing demand for professionals with the expertise to build information technology (IT) solutions to manage big data.
You will learn about IT systems, concepts and methodologies, and develop a comprehensive knowledge of networking, technology and systems, data security and infrastructure engineering. As well as studying theory, you will develop analytical and critical evaluation skills that you will apply to practical projects and simulated workplaces.
When you complete this course you will be able to work in a range of roles related to managing the security of big data.
The degree enables students to learn using a practical hands-on approach and to develop skills such as communication, problem solving and critical thinking,
resulting in well-trained, analytical IT specialists. Presentations and case studies by leading professional experts allow students to develop tools and techniques for managing big data and other IT challenges facing the business world today.
The Bachelor of Information Technology (Data Infrastructure Engineering) prepares students to sit for recognised industry certifications (such as Cisco and CCNA).
