Software Defined Networking at Victoria University of Wellington
Posted on 21-Oct-2015 19:58. | Tags Filed under: News.



The Software Defined Networking Research Centre at Victoria University of Wellington aims to foster collaboration with industry, academia and individuals as well as promote independent research and development activities promoting Software Defined Networking (SDN). SDN is a new networking technology which greatly improves network programmability and is changing how we design, build and operate networks.

The centre is offering multiple scholarships for students wanting to begin a full-time, research-focused Master’s degree. Students will carry out research into the application of SDN to improve the reliability, efficiency and security of networks.
The opportunity to take a new approach to networking based upon the application of software engineering techniques means that we are particularly interested in students with backgrounds in one or more of computer networking, electronics, software engineering, programming languages or formal methods.

Topics include performance measurement, traffic classification for quality of service or security, intrusion detection, application of software debugging and visualization techniques to network programmability as well as the application of formal methods to improve the reliability of networks.

Each scholarship consists of domestic tuition fees plus a one-year stipend of NZ$20,000 to successful applicants. International students, other than those from Australia will be liable to pay the difference between the full international student fee and the domestic fee.

Applicants must be eligible to enrol in a Master’s degree by thesis at Victoria University. In general, this means you have a Computer Science or Engineering (Electronics/Electrical) related honours degree. 

Before continuing with the final application all candidates are provided with a set of tasks to evaluate their technical competency, programming and writing. Applicants typically have four weeks to complete themse tasks. Upon satisfactory completion, the centre will arrange for a Skype Interview with candidates. Part of the interview will be centred around the completed tasks and the submitted report. Successfully passing these steps will result in an invitation to make a formal application via the Victoria University of Wellington’s Scholarships office.
