INNOVATIVE COURSES AND PROGRAMS

The department of Computer and Information Science offers courses in:

COMPUTER NETWORKING

A network administrator is a modern professional responsible for the maintenance of computer hardware and software that comprises a computer network. This normally includes the deployment, configuration, maintenance and monitoring of active network equipment. A related role is that of the network specialist, or network analyst, who concentrates on network design and security. Network Administrators will normally have some of the following industry certifications:

  • Cisco CCNA
  • Cisco CCNP
  • Microsoft Certified Technician (MCT)
  • Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)
  • CompTIA's Network+, Security+, Linux+
  • Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CWNA)
  • Linux Professional Institute Certification (LPIC)

WEB DEVELOPMENT

Web development is a broad term for the work involved in developing a website. This can include design, content development, client liaison, HTML and CSS coding, client-side programming (JavaScript), and Server-side programming/database integration (PHP, MySQL). Modern design and development includes all platforms and devices (phones, tablets, etc.).

Web developers can be found working in all types of organizations, including large corporations and governments, small and medium sized companies, or alone as freelancers. Some web developers work for one organization as a permanent full-time employee, while others may work as independent consultants, or as contractors for an employment agency.

Training in specific software

Students who desire training in specific Microsoft software (e.g. Word, PowerPoint) should refer to Business Office Technology.
