Advanced networking concepts such as VLANs, Inter-VLAN routing, IGP, OSPF, STP, network security, cloud computing, basic network programmability and automation will also be covered.

In this course, students will learn the essentials of front-end web development, covering HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap and JavaScript. They will create responsive and interactive websites that are compatible with mobile and tablet devices.

Starting with HTML5, students will build a basic website structure and layout. They will then use CSS3 to add responsive design elements, including selectors, combinators, the box object model, positioning, animations and advanced layouts using CSS Grid, Flexbox and Bootstrap. Finally, students will use JavaScript to manipulate the Document Object Model (DOM), creating dynamic website features and performing basic form validation.

This course is an introduction to programming using the Python programming language, where learners will develop the foundational skills to create procedural and object-oriented applications.

Students will become proficient at using and implementing fundamental programming concepts including basic language syntax, operators, flow-control, lists and tuples, functions, dictionaries and sets, I/O operations, program modules, database connections, object-orientation, generators and lambda expressions.

This learning outcomes of this course will set a strong foundation for students to pursue more intermediate to advanced programming courses.

This course provides a comprehensive exploration of JavaScript programming, starting with intermediate concepts such as advanced control flow, arrays, functions and objects, with a focus on manipulating the Document Object Model (DOM). Students will then progress to advanced topics like HTTP and asynchronous programming.

In the second part of the course, students will delve into server-side JavaScript programming technologies, including Node.js, Express.js, NPM and MongoDB. They will learn to design, create and deploy a full-stack CRUD-based application, gaining practical experience in building dynamic web applications from the front end to the back end.

This hands-on database course focuses on practical exercises to teach students the fundamentals of modeling and designing relational database schemas. Using enterprise data modeling and mapping tools, students will learn key concepts such as technical requirements analysis, relationship identification, entity mapping, data normalization and validation.

Moreover, students will gain proficiency in interacting with relational database systems through the SQL (Structured Query Language) programming language. By the end of the course, students will be equipped to perform intermediate-level database queries with confidence.

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the Linux operating system, covering a wide array of topics essential for understanding its functionality and administration. Students will explore the underlying operating system architecture, gaining insights into command line interface navigation, device and filesystem management, networking fundamentals, common administration practices and bash shell scripting.
