Expertise and practical experience is gained to enable you to diagnose, repair and maintain computer and network hardware and system software. For example, you will be able to evaluate and upgrade computer systems. You will also be able to support all peripheral equipment which connects to computer networks, so that you will be able to support the services that this equipment provides to users. You will also gain experience in controlling external devices using computers, e.g. surveillance systems, robots, industrial automation systems, etc.
