What is Networking?
Networking is the practice of linking two or more computing devices together for the purpose of sharing data. Networks are built with a mix of computer hardware and computer software.
Study in networking aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to manage computer networks and their security.
With the continued development of Internet computing technology, the demand for professionals in networking, web-based software and systems administration is increasing steadily. Graduates will be able to design, install, configure and maintain networks and their operating systems and interface networks. A significant number of graduates work in systems administration, networking and network management.
Graduates are eligible for membership of the Australian Computer Society (ACS) as well as other organisations such as the Association of Computer Machinery (ACM).
USQ computing academic staff are active and productive in research in Forms Research, Databases, Networks, Games and Operating Systems.
