** A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to 62-64 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
Upon successful completion of this degree, students will be able to:
- install, configure, and maintain client operating systems in an enterprise environment;
- install, configure, and maintain servers and server operating systems in an enterprise environment;
- install, configure, and maintain network infrastructure for LAN and WAN networks and internetworks;
- diagnose and repair problems with servers, operating systems, and infrastructure in an enterprise system;
- administer networks and network operating systems;
- secure the above mentioned systems;
- advise senior staff/administration on issues surrounding network infrastructure;
- pass and maintain current industry certification in the area(s) specific to their program option (e.g., Red Hat, Microsoft, Cisco, Comp TIA); and
- represent the IT industry in a professional manner.
The Network Technology program is designed to provide students with the technical skills required for entry-level employment and with the course work necessary to transfer to a four-year institution. Students may select between the Cisco, Microsoft, Red Hat, or Security option, or they may customize their technology electives to best suit their work or transfer needs. See the program coordinator for information on transfer agreements and internships.
Most of the courses may be taken online as well as in the classroom.
Certificate programs of 4 to 9 courses are also available as well as individualized programs. See Program Coordinators for details.
