Internet is fast becoming the vehicle for integrated multimedia (voice/video/graphics/data) communications. It may absorb within its standards and protocols other well-established technologies, such as telephony, facsimile, messaging, data and entertainment technologies. Its fastest growing service, the World Wide Web, has created a true information revolution and is daily pushing the limits of current technologies to cope with its growth.
Internet technologies have become a discipline in themselves. The Internet Protocol (IP) continues to dominate as a standard for ubiquitous global communications, and other Internet standards (for example, DiffServ, RSVP) are quickly emerging to offer quality of service on the Internet. There is a need to train professionals at the graduate level in this area, where expertise is required beyond basic undergraduate experience.
The objective of the graduate diploma in Internet Technologies is to educate high technology professionals with full undergraduate training for the growing Internet standards, methods, techniques and applications markets. It includes courses in both the main theories and applications of Internet engineering, as well as basic formation in the intricate world of Internet law and electronic commerce.
The diploma operates within the framework of the general regulations of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (FGPS), which are available on the Website at the following link:
