The 2-yearAssociate of Applied Science degree in Computer Networking emphasizes the installation of hardware, ranging from servers to workstations, and installation of software, both operating and application.

With the introduction of computer networks into the workplace, especially small businesses, network administrators and experts are in high demand.  Graduates of this program should anticipate installing or upgrading networks for companies and consultant firms.  Career opportunities exist with companies that utilize computers in business, computation, and control activities, as well as companies that design, manufacture, market, install and service computer and networking equipment.

Laboratory assignments will allow students to install a network, set up hardware and software, and learn to perform maintenance.
