Providing security for computer networks is a critical skill set in today’s economy.  This 2-year program is focused on providing students with the networking basics required of any technician, but also the understanding of network security to ensure systems and networks are adequately protected from cyber threats.  Students will work with Cisco equipment amongst others and have the opportunity to work at securing on both physical and virtualized networks. Graduates will be able to enter the workforce with a strong basic understanding of security or transfer to a four-year institution to continue their education.

Our flexible delivery methods, including web broadcasting and recording class sessions via WebEx, help students with scheduling difficulties. We use various distance learning technologies to allow students to take classes from home or work. Most lectures and demonstrations are recorded so students can view them at their convenience for more clarification or review.
