Looking for an advanced IT qualification? Join our industry-recognised programme in New Zealand’s biggest IT city.
In this advanced computing course we extend the ideas from the Level 5 course to implement, manage and design Microsoft Windows networks. This course prepares you for several industry certifications. During the course students may prepare for Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certifications and Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) server administrator.
Our campus is conveniently located in North Shore City, the home of many leading local and international IT companies.
During the course and also after graduating you will receive ‘mentorship’ and ‘internship’ opportunities with an employer so you can get some really good experience in the workplace. This programme is unique to NZIE and Avonmore and is offered as part of the course at no extra cost to you.
COURSE CONTENTThe modules within the course are outlined below:
Business Networking [CORE]
Everyone working in IT needs a basic understanding of client and server operating systems, and a fundamental knowledge of the way in which networks operate is required to properly understand them. As well as this, an appreciation of the way that IT and the business itself relate is required for IT staff to function productively in the business world. Therefore, this module is aimed at developing the basic skills and knowledge required to successfully work in an IT role, in a business environment.
There are three major topics covered which include:
1. Network Fundamentals
2. Client and Server
3. IT and Business
Network Infrastructure [CORE]
The growth of networks in both complexity and size increases the need for systematic management of servers, workstations and users. This module aims to equip graduates with the skills to undertake this management following industry standards and best practices.
There are two major topics covered which include:
1. Network Infrastructure Services
2. Network Directory Services
The first topic extends students knowledge both in depth of treatment and in breadth of coverage, extending consideration of infrastructure to the WAN, and to secure communication technologies and protocols. The second covers the installation, use, management and troubleshooting of network directory services, and their relationship to other infrastructure components.
Application Servers [ELECTIVE]
Application servers are used in many situations within business IT. The objectives are usually to provide some required feature, while increasing the centralisation of management and decreasing the reliance on desktop configuration and installation. There are five major topics in this module including:
1. Planning and Deployment
2. Terminal Services
3. Content Servers
4. Mail Servers
5. Management and Security
This module builds on the material of the Business Networking and Network Infrastructure core modules, and both of these are prerequisites to this module.
