The fastest growing careers in our nation - and some of the most rewarding - are centered on information technology. Computer & Network Technician/Information Technology offers students a hands-on, project-based approach to mastering theory, concepts and practices in an exciting and ever-changing career field. Students learn through extensive real-life experiences in a newly designed lab equipped with the latest hardware, software and technology. 

In both years of the program, students prepare for multiple, nationally recognized certification exams, including A+ computer service technician, N+, Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT) and S+ network technician.

Work experiences and internships build students skills and employability. Upon completion of the program, they may enter the workforce or pursue further education.
