As computers grow in complexity and their applications expand, so does the need for qualified individuals to work with them. Technicians who can properly install and upgrade computer systems, as well as troubleshoot hardware and operating system problems are in ever increasing demand. Students enrolled in the Cisco Network Engineer program will be trained to install, repair, and troubleshoot computer hardware components and systems as well as set up, configure, and support network infrastructure. Students will be able to act as the liaison for user concerns and needs and to act as representatives for information Technology (IT) departments.
Skills that will be important in this program are knowledge of computer hardware, operating systems, computer components, systems and networks interoperability. Students will also develop critical problem-solving techniques, in addition to both written and verbal communication skills that will then enable them as professionals to meet user needs more effectively.
