Network Technology

Overview
The Network Technology Program includes two educational options. The first is appropriate for individuals who are just beginning their IT career pathway and who currently possess only basic computer skills. This option is best entered by selecting the Computer Support Specialist Career Major which will provide a strong background in computer hardware. Completion of this Major and/or the Major of Enterprise Support Technician provides excellent opportunities for entry level IT employment.
Individuals who already possess strong IT skills may wish to enter directly into the Microsoft Windows Server Administrator (MWSA) career major which uses Microsoft Academy Curriculum to prepare students for higher level Microsoft certifications. This major is also available to students who have progressed through the other majors first. With either option, Network Technology students learn to install, configure and troubleshoot computer operating systems and application software on a variety of stand-alone and networked computers. They also have the opportunity to install, configure and manage their own Microsoft network infrastructure. Finally, students learn how mobile devices are integrated into an enterprise environment.
Each course is designed to prepare students for a specific industry certification exam. Examples of these certifications include CompTIA's A+, Network+, and Cloud+; Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS); Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP); Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA); and C-Tech's Network Cabling Specialist Copper.
