Don’t make what you see on the internet—make what’s on the internet work. Learn to analyze, troubleshoot, repair, install and provide technical support for computer systems and networks.

Our two-year Network Administration Technology diploma program prepares you for a career as a computer network administrator. You will get hands-on standardized and specialized training with current applied technology. Study computer operating systems, scripting and the architecture of computer hardware, networking systems and routing.

Our instructors explain and demonstrate how to configure complex computer networking solutions and challenge students to build and configure their own computer networks in a controlled test environment. We partner with Cisco Systems Inc., and use their current curriculum to teach network routing in a fully equipped Cisco lab.

As a grad, you will find employment in the areas of troubleshooting and supporting data, wireless and voice networks, installing and upgrading computer hardware, installing and supporting computer software and computer programming. We offer a two-month work practicum, where you will fill the job role of a junior computer systems administrator in the IT department in the public or private sector.

In addition to technical skills, learn soft skills such as customer service and emotional intelligence. The skills you gain in this program can also be used towards industry certifications, such as A+, Microsoft’s MCP, MCSA and MCSE, Cisco’s CCNA and CCENT, or Linux+ and Network+.
