(School of Technology)
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree
The Network Engineering bachelor’s degree program gives students an in-depth skill base in the networking tools and problem-solving practices they need to become professionals in the fast-growing field of network technology. Using current networking software and hardware tools, students develop communications skills that prepare them to become highly functional members of project teams consisting of design, technological and business professionals.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to demonstrate the ability to
- Apply knowledge of math, science, engineering and contemporary developments in the fields of network architecture, network security, and transmission systems to carry out analysis and design appropriate network engineering.
- Apply understanding of network engineering processes to identify and analyze problems, and formulate, implement and test networking solutions that meet required specifications.
- Apply understanding of both historical context and emerging developments in the fields of network architecture, network security, and transmission systems to create adaptable and efficient solutions.
- Use the techniques, skills and modern tools necessary for network engineering best practices.
- Integrate knowledge, tools and problem-solving skills to carry out the design, creation, maintenance and testing of state of the art networks.
Specially designed laboratories give students an enriched hands-on environment in which to hone their design and problem-solving skills, become familiar with equipment and methods common in industry, and develop competency in the use of a range of current networking software tools.
Seniors participate in one of these experiential education options: technical project team or internship. Students apply for the experiential education option they want and are placed according to their qualifications, work availability and the best fit for their program of study.
Successful graduates of the program in Network Engineering should be prepared to sit for network certification exams, and will be ready to embark upon careers in information technology and business as network administrators, managers, designers or assistant engineers.
