A Network engineer must be a confident communicator and possess excellent attention to detail, analytical and problem-solving skills. That is what we train you to become.
Network engineers are responsible for implementing, maintaining, supporting, developing, and, in some cases, designing communication networks within an organization or between organizations.
Training in cybersecurity is particularly critical for network security and information technology programs. Courses train students to be able to prevent access from, recognize and track down hackers.
Through these different programs, students learn how to identify security issues and protect information as well as track down those who steal tech-related data. Because cybersecurity is necessary for computer security and other fields, there are several types of programs available that vary in scope and focus.
The goal is to ensure the integrity of high availability network infrastructure to provide maximum performance for their users.

For current network engineering majors, internships provide a path to translate classroom-based instruction to real-world scenarios, get a sense of the industry and make connections for future employment endeavors. We enforce and make it very compulsory for every student to get at least a month of field experience in their chosen field of career.
Certifications were once the end game for any individual seeking employment in I.T career fields. Today, certifications are simply part of the game in general. In network engineering, certifications such as Certified Certificate of Competency (CCC) are ways to demonstrate practical competencies, a commitment to the profession, increase professional credibility, and improve employment marketability.
