The Computer Networking Degree Program is designed to take a student with little or no information technology experience and prepare them for entry-level work in computer networking. The degree prepares the student for the foundational CCNA certification and provides the student with skills needed to implement, maintain, and administer multi-layer switched and scalable internetworks. Students will learn to design and configure LANs and WANs, install network hardware and software, understand and configure network topologies, construct and install cabling
solutions, manage user accounts, monitor and analyze network performance, and perform basic troubleshooting. Students will also be introduced to information assurance fundamentals and technologies.
The computer networking profession is growing extremely rapidly as global dependence on interconnectedness increases. This program fills the critical gap between the skills that are needed by today’s new students and workers that need to be retrained for careers in this field. Upon completion, students will be prepared for an entry-level networking administration position, advancement in their current position, or transfer to a four-year IT program.Click here to see degree requirements
