Networking Program

About the Career

Constructing the networks others rely on, network administrators maintain LANs, WANs and intranets. A growing field, network administrators are in demand in all organizations and businesses.

About the Program

Classes within the networking certificate and marketable skills achievement award prepare students to take industry certification exams, which employers often require of new hires. Professors teach hybrid classes, which are a combination of face-to-face labs and online instruction.

Each class prepares students to earn an industry certification. Students also apply for a co-op experience at a local business, where they work part-time for a semester to gain experience.

After completing the COM networking certificate, students may enter the workforce as network administrators or computer support specialists.
