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 in your first year includes information technology architecture, systems development and software development concepts.
