Computers and networks continue to expand in all aspects of our personal activities to business, manufacturing, education and health care. This program provides a balanced coverage of technology fundamentals, computer hardware, computer software and networking technology. Emphasis is placed on operating principles of hardware and software, networking models, operating systems, and industry standards along with hands-on laboratory activities for developing practical problem-solving skills. Students develop the ability to configure and troubleshoot basic PCs, local area networks (LANs) and basic information technology. Integrated into the program are courses that prepare students to sit for both the CompTIA A+ and the MCITP.
