Abstract

The introduction of the Cisco Networking Academy Program (CNAP) curricula in the School of Computer and Information Science (SCIS) at Edith Cowan University (ECU) in Western Australia has been achieved via the introduction of a new minor in internetworking which is comprised of six new Cisco based units. These units are currently being offered and are all fully subscribed. The introduction of vendor based units in the university has raised issues concerning the nature of university based study and the role of practical assessments within university units. The commitment required in terms of investment, both in staff training and equipment is considered.
