Gower college students from Gorseinon campus visited School of Applied Computing on 1st Dec 2014 for a tailor made taster session on Computer Networks.


Dr Stephen Hole, Head of School (second from the right) welcomed the students and staff on their arrival. The taster session was organised by Dr Kapilan Radhakrishnan (far left) and Dr Carlene Campbell far right) and was designed to give the students an idea of what is involved in the HN/BSc Computer Networks Programme. Kapilan started the session and the students were given details of the advantages of studying computer networking, job prospects in the field, and additional professional qualifications that they can achieve to enhance their Career prospects whilst studying within the School without any extra cost. Later, Carlene took over and gave the students hands-on experience setting-up security on a network and white-hat hacking.
