Computer networks enable computers to talk to one another allowing users to share computer resources. It should not be surprising then that computer networks have become the backbone of every business, education, and government institution. Computer network professionals create and support networks to ensure they operate efficiently and securely. Trocaire College is the only college in the Western New York area offering a college degree that specifically focuses on Network Administration. The program also offers the opportunity to pursue a certificate.
Graduates of this program will learn how networks enable computer users to share computer resources and study how network information is transmitted through various media. Instruction includes such areas as: network architecture, data integrity, troubleshooting, system administration, protocol, security, and future networking trends.
Demand for workers is high and is expected to grow as companies invest in newer, faster technology and mobile networks. While the main focus of the program is to prepare students for careers in network administration, it also prepares students to begin their careers in computer technology, working as help desk or computer technicians.
