Computer Infrastructure and Network Engineering Technology

The world operates on the back-end of computers – networks of computers. Whether it is wired or wireless, information must be able to travel the network securely, efficiently and accurately. The network engineering technology major focuses on high-level design and planning of networks, with a foundation in hardware and software needs to solve computer networking problems. Coursework within your first year includes information technology architecture, systems development and software development concepts.

During your pursuit of a network engineering degree, you’ll work with faculty in the Department of Computer and Information Technology who have years of experience in industry or government. They conduct research on topics such as cybersecurity, high-performance computing, homeland security, cyber forensics, robotics, and health and bioinformatics.
