In this talk, we will introduce the Networking strand in these two programmes. The three Network Technology modules provided in this strand are designed aligned with the Cisco Networking Academy (CCNA) curriculum, covering a spectrum of knowledge for designing, securing, operating, and troubleshooting modern computer networks, on the scale from small business networks to enterprise networks, with an emphasis on hands-on learning and essential career skills like problem solving and collaboration. Students are currently offered the opportunity to sit the optional CCNA exam within the Cisco Networking Academy after each module to obtain a CCNA module certificate of completion.
