Networks continue to expand in all aspects of our personal activities in business, manufacturing, education and health care. This concentration provides a balanced coverage of technology fundamentals and networking technology. Emphasis is placed on operating principles, networking models, operating systems, internetworking components and industry standards, along with hands-on laboratory activities for developing practical problem-solving skills. Students develop the ability to configure local area networks (LANs) and internetworks using routers and switches. Courses that prepare the student to sit for the Cisco CCENT and CCNA exams are integrated into the program.
