Computer networks interconnect computing devices. It varies from small personal area networks (for example, a mobile phone connecting to a printer over Bluetooth), to local area networks (LAN) within a home or an office building, to wide area networks (WANs) reaching across cities, states, or even across the world. The internet is the world’s largest public WAN.
The Bachelor of Networking (BNet) at MIT prepares students to plan, design, implement, manage and maintain computer networks, covering both wired and wireless networks and network architectures such as peer to peer and client server.
Digitisation is sweeping the world creating seismic shifts in career outlooks. To ensure our graduates leave with skills that makes them versatile and digital disruption ready, we offer a set of specializations that develops additional skills for a digital world such as in Cyber Security, Software Engineering, and Cloud Networking.
