Network Engineering program structure

Bachelor’s degrees in network engineering are usually studied full-time over three years, or four years if you complete an optional sandwich year. Work placements allow you to try out potential careers, gain industry insight, and make professional connections.

Some universities offer their bachelor’s program as a BSc, while others classify it as a BEng. BSc programs are more theoretically-oriented, whereas BEng courses include more practical modules. BEng degrees are also accredited by an engineering body.

If you’re keen to further your knowledge, master’s degrees let you dive into more advanced ideas and concepts. Most master’s programs last for one year, but you can study on a part-time basis over two years.

A doctoral degree in network engineering will add several additional years to your studies, but they’re vital for students hoping to contribute to academic research or teach at higher education institutions.

Your timetable will mainly consist of lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical workshops, and computer laboratories. The precise content of your program will depend on the university and elective modules you select, but most institutions include core units in:

  • Data transmission
  • Network security
  • Server administration
  • Network management
  • Hardware installation
  • Network routing
  • Software systems design and programming
  • Network support and troubleshooting
