Network Systems & Cyber Security


Information Technology is designed to introduce students to the world of information technology-computer hardware, software and terminology.  Students will rotate through the four programs in the pathway during Level1 & Level 2, and then work toward the certifications needed in the industry during their final two years.

The four programs are:

  • Computer Networking & Cyber Security
  • Information Systems Management
  • Electronics & IT Support

Students enrolled in the Network Engineering Technology program will study official CISCO curricula covering the CISCO Routing Internet Operating System.  Students will pursue their certification as a CISCO Certified Network Associate (CCNA). Network engineering covers subjects such as designing, installing, and configuring world-wide computer networks, computer network wiring, network security, network management, network connections to the internet, network protocols, web page hosting, installing and configuring Desktop Operating Systems and installation and distribution of software applications across the network.  Students can also cross train between Computer Network Engineering Technology and Computer Technology to pursue a Microsoft Certified Product Specialist in various Microsoft Network and Desktop Operating Systems and software applications.
