These programs teach the information and communication technology (ICT) skills required to design, install, and manage networks. Students learn networking based on technology, covering networking concepts from network applications to the network protocols and services. Upon completion of certain courses, students are prepared to take industry standard certifications including Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) and more.
Message from the Curriculum Chair
Students studying Networking learn the principles and practice of designing, building, and maintaining networks capable of supporting national and global organizations. The program features hands-on, project-driven training in high-demand job skills, using state of the art networking equipment. In addition to acquiring a degree, students are prepared for the CCNA examination to become Cisco Certified Network Associates.
Networking is also a fast growing field as practitioners are increasingly employed in every sector of the economy. Network systems analysts are needed to design, test, and evaluate systems such as local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), the Internet, intranets, and other data communications systems. Systems can range from a connection between two offices in the same building to globally distributed networks, voice mail, and e-mail systems of a multinational organization. Network systems and data communications analysts perform network modeling, analysis, and planning; they also may research related products and make necessary hardware and software recommendations.
