The computing department at Cornell is a young department. The Lecturers are highly qualified, highly collegial, cohesive have common vision. What distinguishes our department from computing departments in other institutes is first our programs are new, designed and developed internally with close consultation with industry and employment agencies. We have incorporated a number of industry certifications to make sure that our graduates will have industry skills that can be sellable to employers. Second, we attempt to have a balance between theory knowledge and practical skills. All our courses is based on a strong theoretical foundation, but still students will spend 50% of their time in practical sessions; administering servers, configuring network equipments such as routers and switches, and are continuously challenged with individual and group application development projects.New Zealand Institute of Management Diploma (NZIM) is designed as an exit point from the N.Z Diploma in Business for those students who wish to have a basic understanding of management practice but do not wish to specialise in business studies.
