Network Engineering

Associate in Applied Science (FP)
Certificate of Proficiency (FP)

We offer both a degree and certificate options in the area of network engineering.

The Associate in Applied Science degree in Network Engineering (AAS) is a 66-67 credit-hour program. It is a skill-oriented program that prepares students to design, implement, troubleshoot, maintain, and secure enterprise networks. Foundational principles of local, wide-area and multi-segmented networks lead to a mastery of skills associated with support of enterprise level networks including network and application servers, desktop hosts, infrastructure cabling and connection devices such as switches and routers (including wireless), security appliances, virtualization of resources for performance optimization and operating policies. The courses in the Server, Infrastructure and Security focus areas enable students to pursue in-depth skill and expertise within one of these three areas while preparing for industry recognized certifications. The courses in the program provide a combination of online, distance learning and intensive, classroom-based hands-on skills development. The demonstration of hands-on skills is critical to employers. Students completing the program are prepared for a variety of industry certification exams as well as entry-level employment technical interviews.
