    Computer networks enable computers to talk to one another allowing users to share computer resources. It should not be surprising then that computer networks have become the backbone of every business, education, and government institution that uses computers. Computer network professionals create and support networks to ensure they operate efficiently and securely.

    Candidates for this program should be naturally curious and almost passionate about computers. Computer Network Administration students need to be committed to a lifelong learning experience as this is an extremely dynamic field. This is not a program of study where you learn how to use computers or sit in front of a computer inputting data into pre-programmed applications.

    Graduates of this program will learn how networks enable computer users to share computer resources and study how network information is transmitted through various media. Instruction includes such areas as: network architecture, data integrity, troubleshooting, system administration, protocol, security, and future networking trends.

    This is an evening program.
