Computer Management/Network Engineering Technology - Associate Degree at Kaplan Career Institute - ICM Campus
The objective of the Computer Management/Network Engineering Technology program is to provide the student with the in-depth knowledge required to effectively plan, implement, maintain and support information systems in a range of computing/networking environments. Students will learn networking configurations and various operating systems as well as Internet products and technologies. The courses taught in this program provide the skills necessary to take the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) certification exams. Although the program is designed to prepare students to take various certification or licensing exams, the School cannot guarantee the student will pass those exams. In some cases, field experience may be necessary to be eligible to take or to successfully pass the exams. Graduation is acknowledged by awarding an Associate in Specialized Business degree upon satisfactory completion of the program. Graduates of the Computer Management/Network Engineering Technology program may be responsible for the security and administration of networks and the designing and implementing of the systems that keep networks functioning. Duties may include planning and installing the hardware and software that comprise the network; adding and deleting files to the network server; maintaining printers and other peripherals connected to the network; troubleshooting problems; and developing, implementing and testing off-site systems that will continue to work in the event of on-site emergencies.
