Network Support Engineer Option (5357)
What is it?
The Network Support Engineer degree program is designed to prepare students to become support experts in the fields of hardware/software support and network administration. Areas of emphasis will be network concepts such as Local Area Network (LAN) and Wide Area Network (WAN) administration from the Microsoft and Cisco points of view.
Upon completion of the appropriate courses, the student may elect to take the associated Microsoft exams and/or the Cisco Certified Network Associate exam. Other certifications can be pursued upon completion of the appropriate courses, including CompTIA’s A+, Network+, and Security+. While every effort is made to assist the student in preparing for these professional exams, no guarantee is made that he/she will successfully pass them.
The student must demonstrate a competency in basic computer concepts. This can be accomplished through attaining the A+ professional certification or earning a minimum grade of “C” in COPR 2250. Exceptions are made for students with exceptional computer experience and are made by the director of the program as needed.
The courses in the program are subject to change in order to be responsive to the changing information technology demands of the workforce.
